The Road That Wasn’t There

About The Road That Wasn’t There

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. A young woman fascinated by this parallel world strays from the beaten track and finds herself in a paper world. It seems a land of possibility until she discovers that what happens in the fictional world can have frighteningly real consequences.

From the creators of The Bookbinder comes an award-winning production drawn from the twitchy edges of children’s literature – a dark fable reminiscent of Neil Gaiman and Pan’s Labyrinth. Combining puppetry and shadow play, The Road That Wasn’t There is a captivating and spooky work for children.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for The Road That Wasn’t There are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
