In the Dead of the Night


This event has passed.

“It’s a cold rainy night and a storm is outside,
Rain beats on the window by Lily’s bedside.
She’s scared of the dark so she shuts her eyes tight,
She hates nothing more than the dead of the night.
Tap tap tap… Comes the noise from the hallway…”
Will Lily conquer her fears?

Will she conquer her fright? 

Will she conquer the ghouls in dead of the night? 

The story follows Lily, a young girl whose wild imagination conjures up fantastical monsters from the strange noises she hears in the middle of the night. Faceplant Theatre’s adaptation brings to life to Arthur McBain’s spooky and heartfelt story through original songs, puppetry, and a dash of silliness.

From the creators of One Duck Down with music by Cat Gisby (Elle & the Pocket Belles)

Arthur McBain’s book has sold internationally in Australia, Korea, Turkey, and is a core title in Waterstones Childrens’ Books Range here in the UK.
