After the success of their show The Young King last November, Australia-based company Slingsby return to The Hullabaloo in Darlington on Friday 24 and Saturday 25 May with their production of Emil and the Detectives for ages 8 years and over.

A story of light and shade, and a few dark shadows, it tells the story of Emil heading from a rural home to visit family in the big city when something valuable is stolen, and the determination of Emil and a bunch of kids to solve the crime and catch the culprit.

The 70-minute performance includes an immersive pre-show experience where audiences will be greeted by Train Attendants and help rebuild the city for Emil and the Detectives. Journey in wonder, to a land of challenging choices and rich rewards to discover magical and intelligent theatre for audiences young and old.
