Two Wonderful Free Children’s Shows as Part Of Wainfest 2018

The Locksmith’s Song

S​et in the dusty world of an old locksmith’s shop this tale soon bursts into action and adventure. The audience are brought on a challenging and rewarding journey, in which our hero, Tom Losluv, struggles to deal with his mother’s illness. A boy tricks death and locks it in a box. He battles with a ferocious monster who has fought great armies of the world and lived to tell the tale. He risks everything he has to save his mother from the sickness that grips her. This is a story that tells of a love and bond that cannot be broken, that of a mother and her son.This highly visual production mixes puppetry and object manipulation with dynamic physical theatre. Keys and locks sing and dance, shadow puppets float and frighten. All told by Eoin Lynch, one of Ireland’s most experienced performers for young audiences.
