They say travel broadens the mind… how far before it breaks?

Gulliver, a traveller and pioneer, shipwrecked and lost at sea for nine years, has returned. He tells tales of lands undiscovered and creatures unheard of, but is he really the same man who disappeared so long ago? They say travel broadens the mind… but how far before it breaks?

With their trademark style, unique puppetry and stunning original music, Box Tale Soup return with a breathtaking new version of Jonathan Swift’s incredible adventure…

Duration : 70 minutes (no interval)
Recommended Age: 12+
