About

Skellig
Nottingham Playhouse
Friday 22 March - Sunday 7 April 2019

“They say that shoulder blades are where your wings were, when you were an angel…where your wings will grow again one day.”

Moving house has been hard for 12-year-old Michael, and now his baby sister is ill in hospital, it seems his whole world has been turned upside down.

Exploring the crumbling garage of his new home one afternoon, he makes an extraordinary discovery. A strange, decrepit creature, Skellig, is hidden amongst the dust, dead insects and junk.

Together with his new friend Mina, Michael decides to help Skellig. But can the mysterious Skellig help Michael in return?

Winner of the Whitbread Children’s Book of the Year and Carnegie Medal, this modern classic has been adapted for the theatre by its author. Let your imagination take flight in this magical re-telling of David Almond’s hauntingly beautiful story.
