Moominsummer Madness

Translated by Thomas Warburton
Adapted by Phil Porter

Puppetry, live music and heart-warming humour combine to bring Tove Jansson’s much-loved Moomins to life in a brand new adventure.

Moominsummer Madness finds the Moomins aboard a floating theatre after a huge flood sweeps through the valley. Mysterious things start to happen. Why is there a door in the floor? Why does the scenery start changing? And where do Moomintroll, Little My and Snork Maiden disappear to? The only way of bringing all the family back together, it seems, is to put on a play!

Royal & Derngate’s Dani Parr (Flathampton, Humbug!), Polka Theatre’s Peter Glanville (We’re Going On A Bear Hunt) and Little Angel Theatre’s celebrated puppet-maker Lyndie Wright collaborate with Bruntwood Prize-winning writer Phil Porter (Starseeker) to create another example of brilliant and inventive children’s theatre.
