Arrival, The

On tour

The Arrival is a funny, wildly imaginative and welcoming show,inspired by the award-winning graphic novel by Shaun Tan. Read more …

A man starts life in a bewildering new city. He doesn’t speak the language; he can’t read the maps or signs. He is helped along the way by sympathetic strangers, each with their own story: stories of survival and hope. 

The play embraces visual and physical storytelling, music and puppetry, with some scenes in British Sign Language (BSL) and English.

All we ask you to bring is your imagination!

The critical consensus

At its best, the show achieves a rare balance between live performance, and the beautiful, strange and meditative quality of the finest animated film.

****(*)Joyce McMillan, The Scotsman, 29/09/2018

Perhaps more geared towards younger audiences, it opens up the power of a theatre beyond words that is emotive, sensitive, playful and kind.
