Take To The Skies with this
new play for family audiences
Written by Rachel Barnett-Jones
Directed by Jemma Gross
Music composed by Arran Glass
Designed by Sam Wilde
Poppy and Mo both dream of flying. When they meet each other in the park they soon become friends and decide to embark on a crazy ambition of building their very own flying machine.
Physical theatre, comedy, original songs, and puppetry create a whirlwind tour through the basics of aerodynamics and friendship.
Writer Rachel Barnett-Jones, Director Jemma Gross and Composer Arran Glass are creating a new show integrating aspects of the STEAM curriculum, to create a dynamic, funny and lyrical performance.
Following the show, families will be able to gain practical hands-on experience of the basics of aerodynamics - inspiring children to experiment with scientific concepts through the arts.
‘Fly High is a creative and educational show full of heart and wonder.’

The finished piece opened in Singapore, at the Singapore Repertory Theatre in March 2020 and it will premiere in the UK at artsdepot in September 2020, before touring to theatres, museums and schools. The project is supported by Arts Council England, artsdepot in Finchley, London, RAF Hendon, and the Singapore Repertory Theatre.
