CYT presents Trick of the Light Theatre (NZ) with their independent, international award-winning production by Ralph McCubbin Howell.

“They say you can get lost in a good book. But it’s worse getting lost in a bad one …”

Inspired by the haunting works of Neil Gaiman and Joy Cowley, The Bookbinder weaves shadow-play, paper art, puppetry and music into an inventive solo performance for adventurous adults and curious children. A story of mystery, magic and mayhem.

Winner of:

  • Best Theatre, NZ Fringe Awards 2014
  • Best in the Fringe, NZ Fringe Awards 2014
  • Tiki Tour Ready Award, NZ Fringe Awards 2014
  • International Excellence Award, Sydney Fringe Festival
