This is the story of Bambert—an im­pos­si­bly small man with an enor­mous love for writ­ing. Tucked away in his quiet at­tic, his only com­pan­ions are the char­ac­ters he has cre­ated in his sto­ries. And then one day, Bambert de­cides to set his sto­ries free, to send them out into the world on lit­tle bal­loons, in the hope that they will find a home. The sto­ries con­tain in­struc­tions: who­ever finds them is to re­turn them to Bambert with a stamp from wher­ever they landed, so he knows where they should be set. But as each day passes, and no sto­ries re­turn, Bambert’s hope be­gins to fade. Will his sto­ries ever find a home? In this de­light­fully the­atri­cal pro­duc­tion Rein­hardt Jung’s in­ter­na­tion­ally lauded novel is brought to life in an in­ven­tive and en­chant­ing pro­duc­tion for chil­dren and adults alike.
