The­atre Night Light

The Lemon Tree, Aberdeen Un­til De­cem­ber 24

With fi­nal per­for­mances to­day and to­mor­row at 10.30am and 1.30pm, Night Light is The Lemon Tree’s Christ­mas show for three to six-year-olds.

Hu­mor­ous and gen­tle, it tells of a cu­ri­ous child who can­not sleep af­ter the black­bird has sung to wel­come the night.

Who is it that looks af­ter the night?

A the­atri­cal poem set within an in­stal­la­tion, Night Light is a col­lab­o­ra­tion be­tween artists from Den­mark, where it pre­miered last year, and from Scot­land, where it is co-pro­duced with Imag­i­nate and Red Bridge and com­mis­sioned through the Scot­tish Govern­ment’s Ed­in­burgh Fes­ti­vals Expo Fund.

It is per­formed by co-cre­ator Andy Man­ley and fea­tures a de­light­fully en­gag­ing and mag­i­cal sound­track by Ed­in­burgh-based com­poser and for­mer chil­dren’s book spe­cial­ist Daniel Pad­den.
