Project Description

The Incredible Book Eating Boy

A MAC co-production with Cahoots NI Based on the book by Oliver Jeffers and published by Harper Collins Children’s Books. Say hello to Henry. The boy who loves books so much that he EATS them! It started with a nervous nibble of the corner of a page – now, the more he eats the cleverer he gets, until things start to go awry. This fantastic, family show is based on the book by award-winning children’s author Oliver Jeffers. An exclusive and extraordinary show that all ages and bookworms will adore.
