Family Season 2015: Up to Speed 8 - 9 Oct 2015

A funny, moving and captivating tale about a boy and a girl and the mysteries of the universe! Part of the Dublin Theatre Festival Family Season 2015.

Barnaby is completely off the wall!

Jade likes to be in control.

But today Barnaby hasn’t turned up for school, and it looks like Jade’s got some explaining to do...

Have you ever met a person who is a little unusual? Someone whose mind seems to work a bit differently? Who surprises you? Who is funny and also fun to laugh at? That’s what Barnaby is like.
Jade has marvelled and laughed at him, been surprised and confused by him. But he has also made her feel small. And she knows exactly how to get him back.
