Friday 27 May 2022, 12.30pm - Relaxed Performance

Based on the books by Sheena Knowles & Rod Clement | Written for the stage & directed by Eva Di Cesare

The award-winning Monkey Baa team brings to the stage a new imagining of the classic Australian books by Sheena Knowles and Rob Clement.
Edward is bored with his lot. Being the only emu at the zoo has left him feeling glum and under the impression that the grass is greener in everyone else’s enclosure. Maybe being a seal, or a lion, or a snake might be a better option in life for a lonely bird? Convinced that the other creatures are more popular, Edward breaks ranks and goes to find the fun and along the way, finds Edwina!

* Relaxed sessions are for anyone who would benefit from a calmer environment. There is a relaxed attitude to noise, doors remain open, and lights are dimmed.
