The Road That Wasn’t There


Having taken the world by storm with sell out seasons and five-star reviews, Trick of the Light Theatre returns to our shores for a 12-centre national tour of The Road That Wasn’t There. Championing puppetry, shadow play and live music this deliciously dark fairy-tale will unleash its magical charms on curious adults and kids (8 and up) from 13 April - 22 May.

In New Zealand there are some 56,000 kilometres of paper roads – streets and towns that exist only on surveyors’ maps. Or do they? A young woman strays from the beaten track and finds herself in a paper world. It seems a land of possibility but she soon discovers that things that happen in the fictional world can have frighteningly real consequences.
