Barking Gecko Theatre Company

Duck, Death and the Tulip

By Wolf Erlbruch. Adapted for the stage and directed by John sheedy

Fri 8 Feb 2013 - Sat 16 Feb 2013


From the critically acclaimed team who brought you The Red Tree comes a theatrical investigation of life and friendship. Adapted from the picture book by award-winning illustrator and author, Wolf Erlbruch, Duck, Death and the Tulip offers a thoughtful, tender and intriguing perspective on a sensitive subject not often explored in children’s theatre. In a strangely heart-warming story, a duck strikes up an unlikely friendship with Death …

“Who are you? Why are you creeping along behind me?”

“Good. You’ve finally noticed me,” said Death.

“I am Death.”

Duck was scared stiff . You could hardly blame her for that.

A live orchestra playing an original score brings the story to stage in an elegant and life-affirming way.

Suitable for ages 5+
