Sparkles

The moments that made me, me.  Created for National Theatre of Scotland’s Exchange in 2009, this is the sweet, quirky story of how three sisters came to be. From the moment their father had a sparkle in his eye to the day they sat by the loch watching the light, as they pondered how life was and might be, as they separate to go their own paths. Hilarious moments come from glow in the dark pro-creation, live births and those family moments that make us laugh.  This is a good choice for a skilled youth theatre, looking to have fun with physical theatre, UV light, puppets and dance.
