How To Fix A Broken Wing


How To Fix A Broken Wing

Age suitability: 8+
Running time: 50 minutes

Inspired by a Japanese folk tale, The Crane Wife, this new Catherine Wheels show for schools makes us think about our responsibility to guests in our country. In a world where many people are forced to leave their homes and seek shelter elsewhere, what is our response? How can we best help those who have lost their sense of home?

In our story, a stranger arrives on a doorstep seeking help. Taken into safety, the kindness is repaid with a sacrifice that shows things are not as they seem.

This is a brand new show so curriculum, background and classroom links will be provided at the start of term.
