by Elizabeth Honey and Sue Johnson

‘It’s impossible not to be charmed by the clever blend of comedy and song which celebrates in the zaniest possible way the playfulness of children, while giving them a rather sophisticated glimpse into the world of music.’

Cameron Woodhead, The Age, 3 October 2014

Miss Ivory Tinklefinger, Queen of Sleep, is hired to sing the audience to sleep, but tonight her music has a mind of its own.
Her lullabies come alive in an anarchic show that emerges like magic from under the lid of her ingenious grand piano. The consequences are wild – and irresistible to children and adults alike.


It’s visual theatre that sometimes feels like an opera and sometimes like a comedy. It's rich and beautiful, abstract and ridiculous. It’s genre-defying and absolutely empowering for children. We want them to feel a part of the show.’ Director Jessica Wilson


Perfect for children 4-10 and their families.
