Shona Reppe’s new show is “near perfect”

Shona Reppe’s new show The Curious Scrapbook of Josephine Bean, has just opened, and is getting a great response from audiences and critics.

Shona Reppe is one of the artists that Catherine Wheels produces for on a regular basis. In fact we’ve been helping Shona to make new theatre productions and to tour them in Scotland and internationally for over ten years. Shona also collaborates with the company and designed the multi-award winning White.

Here’s what the critics have been saying about The Curious Scrapbook of Josephine Bean.

“Reppe has created a highly original, beautifully delicate and thoroughly engaging piece of children’s theatre”
Mark Brown, Sunday Herald

“Shona Reppe has conjured a near-perfect production for those aged seven years and over…. A truly wonderful show that will charm parents as much as their children.”
Thom Dibdin, The Stage

“this superb children’s show for the over-sevens by Shona Reppe is part-detective story, part-journey into the imagination….It’s as stimulating a 50 minutes as you can spend in a theatre, delighting in the joy of discovery”
Mark Fisher, Northings

“Reppe has charm to burn, engaging, kid-friendly, funny storyteller, actor and puppeteer (although it should be noted no puppets actually feature here). This is theatre of the imagination….for both kids and adults alike.”
Alan Chadwick,
