A Half Moon and Z-arts co-production 

When Little Titch and her scruffy rucksack arrive at the giant, pink house it is not what she expected - a blanket of thick grey dust covers everything in sight and it is wild and overgrown. Her new home is cold and unwelcoming until she meets Nelly, a flamboyant and loveable hoarder. Together the pair discover they have more in common than they first thought and that friendship can heal hidden wounds. 

Written by acclaimed award winning children’s author Laura Dockrill (Darcy Burdock book series, Big Bones) Dust uses exquisite poetic language to explore a heartfelt story about love, loss, identity and memory. With haunting music by Hugo White of The Maccabees, this striking and emotional new play is a joyous reminder about just how playful the world can be.

Dust is a Half Moon and Z-arts co-production: an exciting collaboration by the UK’s leading small-scale young people’s venue and touring company and Manchester’s unique and award-winning venue for children and families.

Join us for one of our FREE pre show, drop-in arts and craft ‘Hands on Happenings’ sessions in the Cambridge Junction foyer. These creative activities, led by a professional visual artist are themed to tie in with the family shows that you will be seeing on stage.

Hands on Happenings will be available an hour before the show i.e. 10.30 for 11.30 show. The sessions do get very busy so early arrival is advised.
