Handa’s Hen

Spring Tour 2016

Adapted from the book by Eileen Browne

When Handa and her friend Akeyo go looking for Grandma’s black hen Mondi, they find two fluttery butterflies round the hen house, three stripy mice under the grain store, four little lizards behind the pots…  But where is Mondi?

Based on the book by Eileen Browne, this beautiful and engaging show features 55 stunning puppets all created by hand. Join in with Handa and Akeyo as they sing and dance in search of Mondi, meeting a host of colourful animals and birds as they go.

Brought to you by the same company that created Handa’s Surprise, join Handa and Akeyo on another exciting adventure in their Kenyan home.

“Little Angel has come up with another winner…a beautiful introduction to theatre – highly recommended.”  The Ham and High

 “This warm, inclusive show has an increasingly energising effect on the young audience … a sweet safari…and you learn how to count to ten in Swahili into the bargain.” The Stage

Suitable for ages 2-6

Running time 35 minutes

Based on the book by Eileen Browne / Directed by Marleen Vermeulen / Designed by Lyndie Wright and Sarah Wright
