Emil and the Detectives
Emil has been robbed, but never underestimate the determination of a child! Young Emil catches a train to visit family in the big city. Something valuable is stolen. Luckily Emil soon meets Gustav and his wily band of child sleuths and together they take on the crowded, cosmopolitan streets of the city in a spirited pursuit of justice. Can a bunch of kids work together to uncover and outsmart the true criminal?
Penned in 1929, Erich Kästner’s classic detective novel for children has been transformed into a pacy, gorgeously designed and brilliantly inventive performance by Adelaide’s Slingsby. Internationally renowned for its detailed stage-craft, humour and awe-inspiring theatrical magic, Emil and the Detectives continues Slingsby’s ten-year tradition of reinventing classic children’s stories with contemporary verve and ingenuity.
