Eddie & the Slumber Sisters

Age suitability: 8+
Running time: 75 minutes

Meet the Slumber Sisters. An all-singing trio whose job it is to monitor our dreams and ensure that our night-time wanderings remain healthy and safe. Armed with an infinite supply of remedies, they arrive to create dreams that will help us through difficult times.

Eddie soon catches their attention. She might be quiet and reserved by day but at night Eddie’s dreams are increasingly wild, chaotic and sometimes terrifying. It’s been like this ever since her gran died. As Eddie’s grief comes out in force at night, the Slumber Sisters decide it’s time to intervene.

Blending music, magic, and imagination, Eddie & the Slumber Sisters is a whimsical, heart-warming fable which explores the realities of grief through the eyes of a child.

Starring: Chiara Sparkes, Colette Dalal Tchantcho, India Shaw-Smith and Natalie Arle-Toyne.
