Production synopsis Based on David Almond’s award-winning classic, which beat Harry Potter to win the coveted Whitbread Children’s Book Award, this story has been described as “Humorous, heart-stopping and haunting”.
10 year old Michael discovers a mysterious, fly-eating, old man hidden amongst the junk in the garage; this is Skellig. Michael resolves to help the decrepit creature by providing Chinese food and medicine that restores Skellig to a prominence never thought possible.
But what is this creature? And what are those strange bumps beneath his shoulder blades?
This is a creepy fantasy, full of mystery that promises to entrance and move you as much as it will amuse!
