A comic and musical tale with a ready-made repair service for our unfulfilled dreams.
Never had the sister you always wanted?
No problem, we’ll take care of that.
You want to be a pilot, but you have bad eyesight?
No worries, immediately solved!

Broken Dreams is a beautifully told musical story of love and loss that cleverly integrates the broken dreams and unfulfilled desires of the audience. Starting outside the theatre with a mysterious interactive installation involving a tube, water and rubber ducks, the show combines song, music and witty dialogue to great effect.

Come and share your hopes for the future with the repairers of dreams and the plumbers of happiness! From one of the world’s most exciting and talked about children’s theatre companies.

“…actors and musicians take the audience to a touching, witty place that will fascinate both children and adults.”, E Van de Voorde

Imaginate, Edinburgh’s International Children’s Festival runs from 28 May–5 June
