Trick of Light Theatre: The Road That Wasn't There

Trick of the Light Theatre

Title of Performance: The Road That Wasn't There

Country: New Zealand

This is a story about a girl who followed a map off the edge of the world...

In New Zealand there are some 56,000 kilometres of paper roads–streets and towns that exist only on surveyors’ maps. Or do they? A young woman strays from the beaten track and finds herself in a paper world. It seems a land of possibility but she soon discovers that things that happen in the fictional world can have frighteningly real consequences.

From award-winning company Trick of the Light Theatre (The Bookbinder) comes an original fairy tale drawn from the twitchy edges of children’s literature-a dark world reminiscent of the works of Neil Gaiman. Combining puppetry, shadow play, and live music, The Road That Wasn’t There is a captivating cross-over work for adults and older children (10+). We have been very successful touring in New Zealand and Australia. A Showcase at IPAY would enable us to expand our market reach into North America.
