A new play for all sleepyheads aged 3+ and their families

Leave the ordinary behind and step into a place of wonder;

Snuggle down in a place of still, silent sleepy slumber, a place just for you…

Every night bedtime comes around, but tonight Ivy cannot sleep. When she and her favourite toy rabbit, Bun Bun, find themselves alone on the moon, sleeping is not so easy. The moon can be a funny place. It has two sides and one big face. Ivy tries her best to sleep but she just can’t!

It’s too dark!  The stars are too bright!

The earth sounds are too noisy! And now the galaxy is too quiet to sleep!

Join Ivy and Bun Bun as they try to find a place to sleep that is just right. 

If you can’t sleep, won’t sleep or love to sleep there is something in this show for you. With sublime music, songs and beautiful design, tutti frutti invites you to their new show made of dreams. 

For children aged 3 - 7
