The Show

Oddly. Three unusual creatures hold onto their special treasures and ponder questions which they are unable to answer…

The Lostlet twirls a golden leaf and asks what do I hope for?

The Strangelet holds a smooth white pebble and wonders what do I dream of?

The Oddlet listens to a seashell and thinks what do I wish for?

Suddenly a little boy appears who seems stranger, odder, and even more lost than they are. Together the new friends find surprising ways to make their hopes, dreams, and wishes come true.

A fun, whimsical tale about the big questions in life based on Oddly, the much-loved children’s book by Joyce Dunbar. Norwich Puppet Theatre’s adaptation visually reimagines the story with traditional and contemporary puppets, inventive design and original music.
