    The Bockety World of Henry & Bucket

    by Sarah Argent | Directed by Ricky Drummond

    Henry and Bucket are best pals, although sometimes you wouldn’t think so! Like all good friends they have their ups and downs, their battles and reconciliations, their shared adventures and, at times, their need for their own space. But as long as these two friends are together, transforming their rusty, dusty, battered and bockety world into a place of wonder, their adventures can take them anywhere!

    Originally developed in collaboration with Barnstorm Theatre Company, an acclaimed Irish company that creates theatre for and with children and young people, BOCKETY encourages children to be imaginative and creative, particularly when resources may be scarce. Recommended for PRK’s youngest PLAYers – ages 4+
