Registration required. Fee required. Tickets required.

An old bookbinder sits down to read the tale of an erstwhile apprentice. As he speaks, the story spills from the pages and into the bindery—from pop-up book to puppetry, storytelling to live action.

The Bookbinder was first performed in the back room of a second-hand bookshop. Since then, it has toured throughout Aotearoa / New Zealand, Australia, the UK, Canada, USA and South Africa. The show won accolades including Best of the Fringe at the New Zealand Fringe, the International Excellence Award at Sydney Fringe, and the Best Children's Theatre Award at Fringe World in Perth.

A dark fairytale in the vein of Coraline and Jonathon Strange & Mr. Norrell, The Bookbinder is suitable for adults and older children (10+).
