At the End of everything else
A Unicorn production
Flap your wings! Together we can do this...
- Written and directed by Mark Arends
- Animation by John Horabin
- Engineering by Electric Pedals
When her best friend, a little yellow bird named Tito, goes missing, Icka puts her inventive mind to the test and sets off on a mission over land and sea to save him. But nothing can prepare her for what she finds – a problem that she is unable to fix alone.
Performed with puppetry, animation, music, sound and only the collective energy of the team on stage to generate all the power needed for the show, At the End of Everything Else was the second show by Mark Arends, writer/director of award-winning Something Very Far Away.
