Meet the Slumber Sisters. An all-singing trio whose job it is to monitor our dreams and ensure that our night-time wanderings remain healthy and safe. Armed with an infinite supply of remedies, they arrive to create dreams that will help us through difficult times. Read more …

Eddie soon catches their attention. She might be quiet and reserved by day but at night Eddie’s dreams are increasingly wild, chaotic and sometimes terrifying. It’s been like this ever since her gran died. As Eddie’s grief comes out in force at night, the Slumber Sisters decide it’s time to intervene.

Blending music, magic, and imagination, Eddie & the Slumber Sisters is a whimsical, heart-warming fable which explores the realities of grief through the eyes of a child.

The critical consensus

Catherine Wheels' latest production is a fun yet poignant look at loss.

****(*)David Pollock, The List, 03/05/2018

That Eddie And The Slumber Sisters has the potential to become a better show, as it travels around Scotland, is not in doubt; the final half-hour is riveting, and at times very moving. To reach its potential, though, it needs some sharp cuts, and much more stylish and pacey performances.

***(*)(*)Joyce McMillan, The Scotsman, 05/05/2018

All of this is conceptually entertaining, but takes a lot of explaining.

***(*)(*)Mark Fisher, The Guardian, 07/05/2018

f the script feels heavy on concept and set-up at the expense of plot, with the ending a little rushed, the show is funny, warm and on the whole well pitched at its young audience.

***(*)(*)Allan Radcliffe, 12/05/2018

Honest, life-affirming and peppered with moments of charmingly eccentric comedy, this is, needless to say, a dream of a show.

Mark Brown, Scottish Stage, 11/05/2018

You will laugh, you will cry, you will swoon at the sensational singing. What you won’t want to do is miss it!
