Imagine being 12 and having soldiers occupying your house and land, with only your cat to tell your secrets. Kneehigh Theatre, who wowed audiences at the Wallis with Brief Encounter, return with 946, which was originally produced by the Wallis' new artistic director Paul Crewes.
Kneehigh's signature sorcery of music, puppetry and foolishness transports us to Slapton Sands, England, in 1944. Based on the beloved book by War Horse author Michael Morpurgo, 946 explodes everything we thought we knew about the D-Day landings in this tender tale of love and war.

Every once in a while a show comes along that surprises, moves, and excites audiences in ways only a landmark musical can. Enter Fun Home. It introduces us to Alison, the protagonist, at three different ages as she explores and unravels the mysteries of her childhood.
A musical about seeing your parents through grown-up eyes, Fun Home won five Tony Awards in 2015, including Best Musical. Based on Alison Bechdel's best-selling graphic memoir, it features music by Jeanine Tesori, a book and lyrics by Lisa Kron, and direction by Sam Gold. Their work for this production earned them, respectively, Tony Awards for Best Score, Best Book, and Best Direction. The show even made Broadway history as the first Best Musical winner written only by women. As if that weren't enough, Tesori and Kron became the first female writing team to win Best Score.
Note: This show is recommended for ages 13 and up.
