Beautiful on-stage adaptation of 119yo children's book
A beautiful on-stage adaption of Dot and the Kangaroo jumps onto the stage this autumn, enticing families of all ages into the theatre to enjoy the inspiring 119 year old story.
Creature: An Adaptation of Dot and the Kangaroo
Dot and the Kangaroo is a children's book written by Ethel C. Pedley, first published in 1899. The story follows a little 5yr old girl named Dot who gets lost in the Australian outback and befriends a kangaroo.
Despite the Kangaroo's fear of humans, she helps her new little friend Dot, who, upon eating berries, is able to understand the language of all animals.
This beautiful tale gained worldwide recognition when it was adapted into an animated film in 1977, although some 50 years prior, the book appeared on stage in a 1924 production.
