Award-winning Belfast-based children’s theatre company Cahoots NI will present a brand new show adapted from the picture book ‘Duck, Death and the Tulip’ at the Alley Theatre, Strabane, on Saturday, November 2.

The production will tackle the topical and often taboo subject of death. In a strangely heartwarming story, a duck strikes up an unlikely friendship with Death. This simple, unusual, warm and witty story written by the award-winning author Wolf Erlbruch. deals with the difficult subject matter in a straightforward and thought-provoking way.

After the success of Cahoots NI’s production Egg, which dealt with the early stages of life and the transition from childhood to adulthood, this show explores the experience of loss in the same engaging and thoughtful way.

Cahoots NI Artistic Director Paul McEneaney said: “Life and death are presented as close friends, where one cannot exist without the other in the natural cycle of life. I am very excited to be able to bring this wonderful book to life on stage for families.”

The show features originally composed live music, illusion, dance and, above all magic. Don’t miss this wonderful show on Saturday, November 2 at 2pm and 4pm. Tickets are £4 each or a family of four is £12.
