The Collectors

The Collectors

July 05, 2019 - July 06, 2019

Inspired by The Last Tree - a short story from celebrated Australian author Bruce Pascoe - The Collectors is an immersive and interactive narrative experience for children aged 3 - 8 years that explores themes of community and environment through the art of storytelling and letter writing.

An adventure in story, children enter the world of LittleLeaf as told to them by Sprig and Magnolia - sisters who have travelled from the village of LittleLeaf with their suitcase of special things. This tattered case is full of wondrous, whimsical and fantastic treasures…all of them carefully collected and rich with story. There’s a jar of aromatic red tea concocted from Adeline Eden’s herb garden; a hand-carved, wooden box that keeps a secret; a tiny jar of honey lovingly collected from Horatio's bees and an egg that's…well it’s…suspiciously like something a Gillywobbler would leave behind!

The Collectors is funny, heartfelt, uplifting, playful and artfully crafted to leave its audience with a deeper appreciation for their own special corner of the world…and all of the wondrous stories it has
to offer.
