Pied Piper Theatre presents Robin’s Winter Adventure

A young boy’s incredible journey with a feathered friend.

Will facing his fears turn out to be the greatest adventure of all?

An uplifting tale of change, bravery and friendship told with puppetry, poetry, music and magical design for ages 3+ and their families.

“There could not be a better way than this to introduce your young child to theatre.” Surrey Advertiser

Graham Gurrin gives Robin’s Winter Adventure 4 stars in his review in The Stage:

Robin and his family have to move from their idyllic rural life to one in the big city, and understandably the young boy doesn’t want to go.

Andrew Utley plays dad, himself unhappy about the change, spending too much time preparing too many flowerpots to take to the new flat. Leanne Rowley is mum. Efficient, industrious and always right, the disappointingly short flute piece she plays nicely demonstrates just how focused she is. But the star of the show is Matthew Tanner as Robin. At one moment showing off because he doesn’t want to leave his familiar surroundings (“It’s not fair!”), at another bowing to an imaginary audience because he has just made up another poem, he captures brilliantly both a child’s tantrums and also his wide-eyed enthusiasm, particularly for rhymes. The scene in a school assembly where he chats to the audience of children around him is magical.

Puppets are used to great effect, particularly in the dream sequence, where a robin carries Robin on his back over London.
