Q Theatre

Join four actors as they explore the truth behind a different time and place...

Through inventive play we're transported to World War One where a story emerges of two young men; one a keen enlister convinced he is on his big OE, the other a conscientious objector. As road cases transform to trenches, and a dusty collection of coats becomes a map of Europe, their stories collide on Flanders fields. Through energetic songs and moments of Pythonesque vaudeville, this high energy ensemble beautifully shares unforgettable stories.

“An Awfully Big Adventure is a magnificently rumbustious, inventive and often hilarious production for 8-year-olds and above about, of all things, World War 1”. - Laurie Atkinson, The Dominion Post

“…moving and poignant, but hilarious as well. I learned more about WW1 in that hour than I ever did at school or university! It really was outstanding – so impressed.” - Public Programmes Manager, Rotorua Museum

“As is almost always the case with shows from Capital E, An Awfully Big Adventure is a top-notch production”. - Rochelle Gribble, Kiwi Families

Presented by the award-winning Capital E National Theatre for Children.
