An African folktale set in ancient times when the first people go on an adventure in search of stories. They discover magical animals and the stories come to life in English and isiXhosa with original songs and unique masks.

The play encourages children to tell imaginative stories and to read; it fosters pride in our heritage and language, connects us to nature, brings laughter and opens up channels of creativity.

“So simple and magical. Really clever how it makes one use your imagination.”
“Very creative and imaginative. Kids really enjoyed it!”
“Lovely show, beautiful story and wonderful acting.”
