Enter the world of picture book with actors and puppets!

 

A family of three went into the depths of the forest and was attracted by a colorful bird perched high on the tree.  As such, they quietly launched the absurd bird-hunting plan!  Will they succeed, or end up in a mess?

Adapted from the picture book by Chris Haughton, the storyline of Shh! We have a Plan is slightly different from the original.  The actors use non-verbal movements, various funny props and lifelike puppets to express treating nature with respect is more important than getting what you want at all cost.

This show was inspired by the beautiful picture book Shh! We have a Plan, by Irish author and illustrator Chris Haughton.  Something about the journey undertaken, both physically and emotionally, by his comical characters struck me as having perfect theatrical elements that I wanted to explore.

Having this wonderful book to draw on has allowed us an opportunity to address important subject matters with our young audiences, such as sharing, empathy, protecting nature and our planet, which I think is very important, particularly in today's climate.

I'd like to thank our wonderful creative team, for their vision and passion in bringing this story to life.

We have a fantastic production team who are committed to bringing this show to the stage every day - a big thank you to them for their hard work on this project.

We also have a wonderfully talented cast - I thank them all for the dedication, energy and creativity they have invested into the show.

Finally, thank you, our audience, for coming to see Shh! We have a Plan.  This show has toured extensively in the UK, Ireland and North America, but this is our very first visit to Hong Kong and a very special moment for us as an organisation.

We are excited to share our story with you and cannot wait for you to see what we have planned.  Enjoy the show!
