A Small Tale
Punchdrunk is an award-winning international theatre company with a reputation for ground-breaking productions that blend classic texts, physical performance and design installation in unexpected sites. Since 2008, Punchdrunk Enrichment has delivered magical projects with over 100 primary schools.
A Small Tale: A Teacher-Led Adventure is a Punchdrunk Enrichment project for primary schools (Years 1-4), led by the teacher in the classroom. It aims to inspire and develop imaginative teaching practices for literacy; placing the teacher at the centre of the creativity.
Intrigue begins as you and your class read a mysterious old picture book about two mischievous and messy tiny people with a love of stories. When you return to the book the following day the pages are all blank, except for two sets of tiny footprints… and you discover that the tiny characters have escaped. You discover a letter from the book’s previous keeper, Orla Hennessy. With her help and guidance your class will be tasked with tracing the characters’ movements around the school. The only way to return the characters to the safety of the book’s pages is to write them a story – and time is pressing as they are in danger out in the world of big people.
