My Friend Mole is the story of a very special friendship and the power of imagination. It is a show with a big heart, for little audiences.
“Mole is my best friend, he is brave and funny; someone I play with when I’m on my own. Mole goes everywhere I go. No one can see him apart from me”.
My Friend Mole is a tender story exploring the poignancy and humour of the relationship between a boy and his imaginary friend. This gentle tale is told using live music, songs, storytelling, projections and a rich visual language that will delight and surprise audiences. Children get to sit on cushions right next to the action which involves some gentle interaction

We believe our audience is creative and intelligent and we honour that by creating a time and space for them to indulge in the possibilities of their imagination.
