Edward the Emu

Event , Concert or Performance At Redland Performing Arts CentreRedland Performing Arts Centre

Friday 17th June
10:30 - 11:20am

A Monkey Baa Theatre Company production Edward the Emu. Based on the books by Sheena Knowles & Rod Clement. Written for the stage & directed by Eva Di Cesare.

The award-winning creative team from Monkey Baa Theatre Company are back with a brand-new take on another much-loved tale, Edward the Emu. More than an adaptation, this is a unique imagining of two beloved picture books, Edward the Emu and Edwina the Emu, combining the plights of both emus in one heartfelt, clever and funny new tale.

Edward is bored with his lot. Being the only emu at the zoo has left him feeling glum and under the impression that the grass is greener in everyone else’s enclosure. Convinced that the other creatures are more popular, Edward breaks rank and goes to find the fun and along the way, finds Edwina!

Written for the stage by Monkey Baa’s Artistic Director Eva Di Cesare (Diary of a Wombat) we follow the emus as they hilariously navigate their own feathered existential crises, seeking to find their place in the world. Meanwhile, unaware of the birds’ internal worlds, their human keepers are in hot pursuit to restore order to the zoo.

With exceptional, world-class puppetry, the emus’ journey of hijinks and tenderness leads them to discover that the best thing you can be is …. you!
