About the Show

Three quirky tales by Margaret Mahy come to life on stage. Norvin loves swimming in the bay but wishes he could swim as fast as he can without other swimmers getting in his way. He finds a novel way to have the water all to himself. But is he alone?

Also featuring Mahy’s The Boy with Two Shadows (having your own shadow is one thing, but when you agree to look after a witch’s one then the troubles begin) along with The Boy who was Followed Home (ever been followed home by a hippo, or two? Imagine what Mum says when she finds them in your front garden!)
