Marianne Dreams, the Almeida Theatre's first show specifically for families
Catherine Storr’s classic children's novel Marianne Dreams was first published in 1958 and reprinted many times. Moira Buffini’s adaptation, directed by Will Tuckett, is the Almeida’s first production specifically for families and will run at the Almeida from 13 December 2007 to 19 January 2008.
On her tenth birthday Marianne runs a fever and to her horror she’s soon confined to bed. She picks up a pencil and starts to draw to fill her time.
That night Marianne dreams. Transported into her own picture she discovers she has the power to change her dreams.
As she draws by day and dreams by night, Marianne soon realises the consequences of her actions and finds that she’s not alone – a sick boy called Mark exists not only in her dreams but also in her waking reality.
Marianne Dreams is recommended for children of seven years and above.
