Syd’s favourite person in the whole wide world is grandad and grandad’s favourite person is Syd.
Join the intrepid duo as they head off on a heart-warming adventure filled with songs, laughter and jungles that will change their lives forever.
This family show is based on the book by Benji Davies who is an illustrator, author and animation director; Grandad’s Island won the children’s book category of the AOI World Illustration Awards 2015 and was crowned Best Picture Book and overall Children’s Book of the Year at the Sainsbury’s Children’s Book Awards 2015
Director Matt Aston said: “I first read Grandad’s Island in a book shop in the summer of 2015 whilst looking for a new story for my two boys. I knew immediately I wanted to adapt it for the stage.
“Several meetings, two Arts Council bids and two and half years later we’re ready to share our version of Benji’s beautiful book.”
Grandad’s Island comes to the Cornerstone in Didcot on March 24 with two performances; 11am and 2pm.
Tickets are £8, with concessions costing £6. To book your place, head to cornerstone-arts.org or call 01235 515144.
