Based on the award-winning children’s book by Debra Frasier, the story explores the scientific phenomena that unfolded on the day ‘You’ entered the world. This top theatre production combines puppetry, poetry and music that celebrates the natural miracle of the earth. The author’s radiant collage illustrations translate to a miniature stage as puppeteers open trick boxes releasing the wonder described in the book.
