Friendship? Sharing? The ups and downs of being very young? It can only be the revival of Seesaw at Unicorn Theatre! The much-loved theatre piece is back again with big ideas wrapped up in a small and simple narrative, the perfect size for its audience to digest.

With just a boy, a girl and a toy rabbit called Hairy, Seesaw creates an abundance of adventures. There are holes to dig, sand castles to make and treasures to find, so we can’t delay! Of course, it’s much easier if you have a partner to help you along the way, and this show is all about the hard work involved in making friends. Covering the themes of sharing, cooperation and collaboration, through the course of the play, the pair learn that friendship really is a balancing act. This is a performance of few words, instead, props and visuals are used to introduce each new chapter of the story, so even the youngest audience members will be able to follow along.

The show runs at 40 minutes long with plenty of time afterwards to play in the on-stage sandpit, so there’s no doubt about the playtime potential of the piece! Combining childish playtime fun with weighty and significant lessons about friendship, Seesaw looks set to be a perfect balance.

Seesaw is showing at Unicorn Theatre from 26 January – 11 March 2018. For more information or to book tickets, please visit the website.
