Need A Little Help

Oct 2018

Joe and Ella are a great team - they make each other laugh, help each other out and tackle all the chores their busy lives throw at them. But one morning things begin to change, as Joe gets all tangled up and Ella has to do things alone. Will she be able to continue as before or will it all get too much? If only she had a little help...

Based on the experiences of young carers, the piece explores what it means to look after someone else when you are young. In a uniquely staged piece, the young audience will help the performers look after each other, stepping into the shoes of young carers.

Need a Little Help is a deeply moving and joyfully uplifting piece of interactive and physical theatre from award winning ensemble Tangled Feet.
