This is Not My Hat

3 May – 1 September 2020

We are offering all our online shows for free, but if you are able to make a donation it would be much appreciated.

Following on from the success of I Want My Hat Back, we’ve once more partnered with Ian Nicholson, Samuel Wilde and Jim Whitcher to adapt the second book in Jon Klassen‘s series, This is Not My Hat.

The show was created remotely, with the creative team communicating across Zoom and WhatsApp over 200 miles apart, and the set posted to Nicholson to rehearse and perform from his living room in lockdown.

This is Not My Hat follows a little fish who has stolen an even smaller hat from an even bigger fish. But whilst the little fish hides himself where the plants are big and tall and close together, confident that he won’t be discovered, the big fish is already on his trail.

Thanks to the generosity of Jon Klassen and Walker Books, this show will be available to watch for free on the Little Angel Theatre YouTube channel until Tuesday 1 September 2020.
