The energy of a gig with powerful storytelling and exquisite animation...


It’s 1981 and ska music pulses. Young Ashley creates havoc by getting lost in a wild, imaginative world while Mum longs to return home to Barbados. When Jedi battles and forest adventures go too far, will Mum resort to the scariest threat of all? Accompanied by an original soundtrack, this is a funny, anarchic show for children and a nostalgic trip for adults.

Suitable for ages 7+
