Book Story. It’s a story, about some books. In a library.

But these are no ordinary books and this is no ordinary library. It’s Brian’s library: a wonderful, magical place where the books like to flutter their pages and let their shelves go…

Then one day Brian changes and the library goes…quiet. What’s going on? The books had better stiffen their spines: to get to the bottom of this mystery they may have to check themselves out…

In this celebration of books, reading and libraries, the pioneers of the puppet musical MONSTRO Theatre and their band talented performers use songs, puppetry and dynamic performance to tell the story of the story in the digital age.

‘Incredible performance. Completely original, unexpected and heartwarming.’
Derby Theatre

‘A perfect story for supporting a love of books and reading.’
Chesterfield Library

Age Guidance
Bookstory is aimed at ages 6 – adult. The company say: ‘The show was written with an older age range in mind, with sophisticated wit and dialogue, and the basic premise of the show is that the different book characters are different ‘genres’ of book. Although the show is largely upbeat and fun, it has a central theme of bereavement.  Children of about 6 and over should be able to follow the basic plot-line and can enjoy the busy and musical nature of the show.’
