Half Moon and Z-arts present Grandad Anansi by Elayne Ogbeta for ages 4-9.
An uplifting tale of love, courage and letting go.
Abi and her Grandad tell each other Anansi folktales. They play games as they work together in the garden among the beautiful flowers and tasty vegetables. As they plant memories, they share secrets and develop a bond that nothing can break. Grandad is as smart and mischievous as the wily Anansi legend. Can he find a way to tell his granddaughter about his plans to return to Jamaica, his beloved homeland?
Join our intrepid characters in this humorous and heartfelt inter-generational adventure, as they step into the unexpected. With evocative live music, Grandad Anansi is an uplifting tale of love, courage and letting go.
Written by children’s author Elayne Ogbeta, Grandad Anansi 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 award-winning venue for children and families.
Grandad Anansi is touring the UK celebrating Black History Month.
Performances last 40 minutes, no interval.
We have created a Grandad Anansi Visual Guide. This guide is designed to help children with autism, sensory needs or anyone that may benefit from an introduction to Z-arts and their families prepare for their visit. Download the Grandad Anansi Visual Guide here!
