  • Recently it has felt like grief is all around us. Seeds of Memories is a wistful and uplifting show packed to the brim with puppetry and poetry. It offers a gentle exploration of losing a loved one and dealing with grief through the magic of the memories they leave behind.

    Join ‘A’ as he explores the garden and his relationship with his grandfather, as both grow older together. After his Grandad passes away, ‘A’ finds comfort in the love of nature they shared and the memories they grew together.

    Inspired by the works of Dylan Thomas, simple rhymes and spoken word give way to fantastical and intricate puppetry sequences, tied together with heartbreakingly intimate naturalistic scenes which are all-too-familiar.

    Created by Black Hound Productions for the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, this piece is supported by the egg, Theatre Royal Bath Young Creatives Scheme.

    Suitable for ages 6+.
