First Three Drops 2023

First Three Drops

A Taking Flight/Park & Dare Theatre Co-production

Ceridwen the witch has a problem..a big problem.  There is only one thing for it: powerful magic is needed. When Ceridwen leaves Gwion, her son’s best friend, in charge of stirring her VIP (very important potion) for a year and a day, she can never imagine the mayhem that will ensue.

With shape-shifting, sorcery and silliness galore, First Three Drops is a funny and magical story of adventure, with British Sign Language. The show will also feature integrated audio description. Based on the legend of Taliesin by Elis Gruffydd.

Recommended for little ones aged 2 – 9 and their grown-ups.
