The Owl Who Was Afraid of the Dark

A Unicorn production

Dark is exciting. Dark is kind. Dark is necessary...

  • By Jill Tomlinson

This show now sold out. However, this weekend on Sat & Sun, there are still places available for our Owl-themed workshops - find out more and book.

Plop is a Baby Barn Owl, fat, fluffy with a beautiful heart-shaped ruff and knackety knees. He’s still learning to fly, very curious and almost always hungry. And he’s afraid of the dark, which is not very helpful for a night-bird. So his exasperated mother sends him on several missions to find out more about night time. Will Plop learn to embrace the dark? Settle down beneath the stars to find out in this imaginative adaptation of the much-loved children's book. 

The Owl Who was Afraid of the Dark is an immersive and highly engaging experience. Instead of conventional seating children will be given chairs and adults will be able to sit near them on cushions. We will have some seating for people who need it and will be able to accommodate you on the day.
