The Curious Scrapbook of Josephine Bean

A truly sensory and thought-provoking piece –
a great piece of children’s theatre that is not just for children

Josephine Bean.1

Everything is flat, pressed, squished.

A dusty, musty smell mixes with the scent of old lavender and a string lifts a flap to reveal a hidden door.

Slowly, page-by-page, the scrapbook becomes the window into a secret world and a curious life unfolds before us. Who was Josephine Bean?

Look closer because the clues are in its pages………….
Suitable for ages 7+

What emerges in this superb children’s show for the over-sevens by Shona Reppe is part-detective story, part-journey into the imagination.
