Every child has dreams of flying away and going on a magical adventure to the stars. And that’s exactly what one lucky boy gets to do in Big Wooden Horse’s production of The Way Back Home.

A boy finds a plane in his cupboard and flies it higher and higher until he runs out of fuel – but thankfully he lands on the moon.

The adaption of award-winning author Oliver Jeffer’s children’s book features original music, and to keep the kids entertained has a large amount of audience participation.

The Way Back Home follows a little boy’s intergalactic adventure as he tries to find his way back home to earth, encountering a strange little alien on the way.

Oliver Jeffers is an artist, illustrator and author. He is widely known for his picture books for children, including the critically-acclaimed How To Catch A Star and the multi award-winning Lost And Found.

The Way Back Home is the latest production from children’s theatre company Big Wooden Horse, a London-based company which creates theatre for younger audiences and families.

The Way Back Home will be at The Point, Eastleigh on April 12 at 1pm and 3pm.
