M6 Theatre’s powerful story captures children’s imaginations with lively performance, original music and just ONE spoken word. Providing the most perfect introduction to the magic of theatre, ONE LITTLE WORD is for anyone who’s ever struggled with sharing.

The egg and Margarita Sidirokastriti present Taking Flight

Saturday 15 June with performances at 11am and 2pm

Recommended for children 6+ and their families

If you had to take a long journey away from home and you could only take one item with you, what would it be?

Armed with only a backpack of favourites items, follow one child’s continental adventures across deserts, wind-whipped mountains and the inky depths of the ocean, propelled by the child’s gently-repeating mantra ‘just keep moving forward’.

Expect live drawing, evocative, worldwide soundscapes, remarkable simplicity and a profound sense of what it is to be human as our little hero’s perilous journey quietly unpacks the importance of having a place to call ‘home’.

Book tickets here for 11am performance

Book tickets here for 2pm performance

Running time approx. 45 minutes
