When Little Titch and her scruffy rucksack arrive at the giant, pink house it is not what she expected – a blanket of thick grey dust covers everything in sight and it is wild and overgrown. Her new home is cold and unwelcoming until she meets Nelly, a flamboyant and loveable hoarder. Together the pair discover they have more in common than they first thought and that friendship can heal hidden wounds.

We were really excited to programme Dust last year, but were unable to stage it due to the pandemic. We are delighted to be able to bring it to you this year for online viewing, from the comfort of your own home. It will be available to watch from 11am every day from 13 – 20 February online (and once we’ve sent you your link, you can watch it at any time during the week’s run).

Written by acclaimed award-winning children’s author Laura Dockrill (Darcy Burdock book series and Big Bones), Dust uses exciting puppetry and exquisite poetic language to explore a heartfelt story about love, loss, identity and memory. With haunting music by Hugo White of The Maccabees, this striking and emotional new play is a joyous reminder about just how playful the world can be.

Dust is a Half Moon and Z-Arts co-production: an exciting collaboration by the UK’s leading small-scale young people’s venue and touring company and Manchester’s unique and award-winning venue for children and families.

You can book through our box office system as you would for any show, and we’ll send a link through to you by 11am the following day. You will be able to watch this show until Saturday 27 Feb.

This show is being shared on a Pay What You Feel basis, so that as many people can have access to it as possible. At a difficult time for the arts, and at a time when we’re trying to support artists as an organisation, we would appreciate whatever you are able to pay for this.
