Loose Ends
Redland Performing Arts Centre

Step into a magical world of wonders and wacky contraptions for this quirky tale of friendship with a touch of Mr Bean

Makers, creators, and story lovers; dive into a theatrical adventure that feels like the magic box of a bygone trickster! Journey to an eccentric place packed with naughty puppets, untamed machines and crazy gadgets, where circus tricks pop up when you’re least expecting it! This is a world where music appears from lemons, carrots and bunny’s bums, monsters go crazy and birthday parties are ferociously celebrated. Loose Ends is the story of a man who thinks he can organise all his life in boxes and has a knack for getting into mischief. Can this tinkerer learn enough about real friendship to keep him out of trouble?

This breathtaking show is highly visual, emotional and unpredictable, and is brought to you by the same stellar team that brought Squaring the Wheel to the RPAC stage in 2015. It makes inventions and machines fun, and adds a few quirky edges to puppetry. There is also a sneakily educational post-show Q&A, where a few of its tinkering and technological elements are explained and experimented with for your little inventors.
