    A young girl playing with a doll in Dust: Half Moon and Z-arts co-production for young  people.
    Stephen Beeny

    Little Titch makes a new friend in a joyous and heartfelt play for children aged four to nine, written by Laura Dockrill.

    Take a front-row seat at a digital production of Dust, live-recorded at Half Moon Theatre using an enchanting mixture of puppetry and live action.

    When Little Titch and her scruffy rucksack arrive at the giant, pink house, it's not what she expected.

    A blanket of thick, grey dust covers everything in sight, and it's wild and overgrown.

    Her new home is cold and unwelcoming – until she meets Nelly, a flamboyant and loveable hoarder.

    Together, the pair discover they have more in common than they first thought and that friendship can heal hidden wounds.

    Written by Laura Dockrill, author of the Darcy Burdock series and Big Bones, Dust uses exquisite poetic language to explore a story about love, loss, identity and memory.

    With evocative music by Hugo White of The Maccabees, this production is a reminder of how playful the world can be.

    Dust is a collaboration between young people's venue and touring company Half Moon and Manchester venue for children and families Z-arts.

    A Half Moon and Z-arts co-production.
