EMIL AND THE DETECTIVES

By Erich Kästner, adapted for the stage by Nicki Bloom How do we find our friends in the world? How do we work together to defeat tricksters? Never underestimate the determination of a child! Young Emil catches a train to visit family in the big city. Something valuable is stolen. But the thief soon discovers Emil was not such an easy target. A group of quick-thinking and resourceful children rallies around. Can a bunch of kids work together to uncover and outsmart the true criminal? Adapted for the stage by Nicki Bloom, Kästner’s 1929 novella is more than a ‘good romp’; it broke ground for the independent-children-versus-devious-adults story genre. Streetwise city kids, a hard-working single mother and Emil’s past brush with the law add grit and nuance to this satisfying tale. In Slingsby’s signature intimate theatrical style, Emil and the Detectives is told by two skilled actors immersed in smoke and mirrors, miniature worlds and a cinematic score. Dark and light, intrigue and delight for audiences. “The company’s theatre productions always have a sense of wonder and magic, and Emil and the Detectives delights, intrigues and astonishes its audience...Emil and the Detectives is an outstanding piece of children’s theatre which makes it an outstanding piece of theatre and an experience to be savoured by all.” - InDaily, Greg Elliott “...Emil and the Detectives adds to Slingsby’s already substantial record of presenting entertainment for families that actually deal with important issues.” - The Advertiser, Peter Burdon Cast & Crew Director: Andy Packer Playwright: Nicki Bloom Composer and Sound Design: Quincy Grant Designer: Wendy Todd Costume Designer: Ailsa Paterson Lighting Designer: Geoff Cobham Technical Design: Chris Petridis Animation Director: Luku Trembath
