Reppe has created a highly original, beautifully delicate and thoroughly engaging piece of children’s theatre. SUNDAY HERALD

Hurry! Dr Patricia Baker needs your help. She has made a thrilling new discovery – a dusty, dog-eared and secret-filled scrapbook.

Step inside this whimsical detective story and help her crack the clues to find its author. Slowly, page by page, her mysterious scrapbook comes alive through beautifully delicate puppetry, a thrilling soundtrack and imaginative visual effects, until the extraordinary truth about its owner is revealed.

Created and performed by the wildly inventive Shona Reppe, this unique exploration of life and love is a sensory delight for the entire family.
