It’s back! The beguiling story of Ruby, a little girl who may not believe in fairytales but who certainly believes in wishes. Confined to a hospital bed for much of her childhood, little Ruby has had to grow up far too fast, and confront too much. But when she is visited by Dot, a tongue-tied clown doctor, she finds a way to use her greatest asset: her imagination.
With exquisite puppetry, in a tale forged of fantasy and reality, Ruby’s Wish is a pocket-sized bundle of charm for all ages. As we watch the two misfits – ailing child and awkward clown – create their fantasy world of mop monsters, bed caves and imaginary paper friends, we are drawn into Ruby’s bittersweet life – and come to see that imagination can make almost anything come true.
After a rapturously received outing in 2014, we’re very pleased to bring MAKEbeLIVE’s puppets, magic, beatbox and exquisite performances back for another season. If you missed it last time, well, here is your second chance.
