Something monstrous is keeping Emily Brown awake…
One evening, Emily Brown and her old grey rabbit Stanley hear a Thing crying outside their window. He just can’t get to sleep. Emily Brown and Stanley set off on incredible adventures to the Dark and Scary Wood, the Whirling Wastes and beyond, to find the Thing’s cuddly, his bedtime milk and his medicine… But nothing seems to help him settle. What’s really troubling the Thing–and will anyone ever get to sleep? Find out in this magical, musical show based on the much-loved book by Cressida Cowell (writer of ‘How to Train your Dragon’) and Neal Layton.
