Suitable for ages 5 - 11 years

Inside Nanny Lacey’s flat are her collection of miniatures. These homemade creations capture the adventures she’s shared with her daughter Bella over the years. Like 3D photographs, they’re treasured moments of time and each one tells a different story.

As Nanny Lacey has gotten older she’s started to forget things. Change is on the horizon and she’ll soon move into a care home. Before she goes, there is one final miniature to share, and story to be told.

In this magical, immersive and interactive experience, Bella invites you to join Nanny Lacey in her flat and explore the tiny worlds she has created.

Punchdrunk (Sleep No More) has pioneered a game changing form of theatre in which roaming audiences experience storytelling inside sensory theatrical worlds. Developing work for schools and communities alongside major productions around the globe, this will be their Scottish debut, presented over a special three-week season.

Supported by the PLACE programme, funded by the Scottish Government, the City of Edinburgh Council and the Edinburgh Festivals, and supported and administered by Creative Scotland.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Small Wonders are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
