1927: Please Right Back


From 1927, the multi-award-winning company behind previous hits The Animals and Children Took To The Streets, Golem and ROOTS, comes a brand-new show. Combining handcrafted animation and bold storytelling, join us and dive into a magical and mischievous world, inspired by a true story.

Kim and Davey’s dad, Mr E, has disappeared. When Mr E writes to his children to tell them what has happened, his imagination takes over. Reality collides with fantasy, as we travel on a fast-paced journey through his wild adventure stories. Mr E’s letters are staged using song, dance, and absurd, subversive animations, as his stories become a kind of game between him and his children - a cathartic release in the face of distress.

Please right back explores the difficulties children go through when a parent leaves the family while celebrating the power of the imagination to overcome hardship. Part social realism, part science fiction with a healthy dose of mischief and a dash of dystopia, Please right back is a eulogy to the power of the imagination, storytelling and make-believe.
