10. Owl at Home at the Torch Theatre Plus Half-Term Films
Thursday 27th October (half term for some schools in England)
Based on the illustrated children’s book by Arnold Lobel Adapted for the stage by Rina Vergano + Theatr Iolo
Owl lives alone in a cosy little home in a hollow tree in the woods. With no one to talk to, Owl sings to himself and looks for ways to pass the time. He wonders about things a lot. What will happen if he invites winter into his home? And can he be in two places at once?
As his imagination runs away with him, ordinary objects begin to take on a life of their own and Owl finds an unexpected friend who’s willing to follow him to the ends of the earth… whether he likes it or not!
An enchanting tale with music, Owl at Home shows us how friendship can be found in the most unlikely of places.
Age Guidance: Children aged 5-11 and their families
