With beautiful puppetry, original music and lots of laughs for the whole family, award-winning duo Cressida Cowell (author of How to Train Your Dragon ) and Neal Layton's tale of Emily Brown comes to life on stage!

Join intrepid explorer Emily Brown and her sidekick bunny Stanley on a colourful adventure to find everything the Thing needs for a good night's sleep.

One evening, Emily Brown and her old grey rabbit Stanley hear a Thing crying outside their window. He just can't get to sleep. From the twisty-twiny treetops to the freezing fridge and beyond, Emily Brown and Stanley set off to the Thing's cuddly, bedtime milk and medicine… But nothing seems to help him settle. What's really troubling the Thing - and will anyone ever get to sleep?

Parents and children the world over will recognise all the bizarre excuses a child can make to keep the light on and a parent in the room at bedtime. This charming and cheeky story has a gentle message that there's really no need to make excuses or be scared of 'Things' at bedtime.
