Stick by Me 1 - 3 Oct 2019

We welcome Andy Manley back to The Ark with a gorgeous non-verbal show for Ages 3-6 about friendship, play and having adventures.

'It's a stick. It's just a stick.'

But for one, all alone, this stick has something special. And soon the two are the best of friends. They run, play, hide and rest...and stick together when things get tough.

Beautifully crafted, making treasure from everyday objects, Stick by Me is a joyful show about friendship and play, and the importance of treasuring little things.

Created by the duo behind critically acclaimed White - Andy Manley and Ian Cameron - Stick by Me builds on their vast experience of creating performances for very young children.

Presented in partnership with Dublin Theatre Festival as part of the Theatre for Children season in DTF 2019
