Welcome to the beautifully strange world of White. Full of birdsong and birdhouses, it gleams and dazzles and shines in the night. Two friends look after the birdhouses and make sure the eggs stay safe. Their world is bright, ordered and white. But high up in the trees, all is not white. Colour appears. First red... then yellow... then blue...

Nominated for a Broadway Drama Desk Award, White is a playful, highly visual show for very young children and is a perfect first time theatre experience.

Duration 40mins / Created by Andy Manley / Directed by Gill Robertson / Designed by Shona Reppe / Music by Danny Krass / Performers Sean Hay and Ross Allan
