Bambert's Book of Lost Stories

  • Perth Cultural Centre

In this world premiere, Reinhardt Jung's internationally lauded novel is brought to life in an inventive and enchanting production for children and adults alike. 

This is the story of Bambert - an impossibly small man with an enormous love for writing. Tucked away in his quiet attic, his only companions are the characters he has created in his stories. And then one day, Bambert decides to set his stories free, to send them out into the world on little balloons, in the hope that they will find a home. The stories contain instructions: whoever find them is to return them to Bambert with a stamp from wherever they landed, so he knows where they should be set. But as each day passes, and no stories return, Bambert's hope begins to fade. 

Will his stories ever find a home?

Presented by Barking Gecko Theatre Company and adapted for stage by Dan Giovannoni & Luke Kerridge from Bamberts Buch der verschollenen Geschichten by Reinhardt Jung.
