The Curious Scrapbook of Josephine Bean

Part of Imagine Children's Festival

Slowly, page-by-page, a scrapbook becomes a window into a secret world in an enchanting performance for children over seven.

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.

A curious life unfolds before us, but who was Josephine Bean? Look closer because the clues are in the scrapbook’s pages...

This show by Shona Reppe Puppets won best production for children and young people, Theatre Awards UK.
