"Quality shines in family drama" See review by North East Theatre Guide here

"The dance above the abyss" See review by Avril Silk of remotegoat here

"Some people will tell you none of these things happened. They’ll say they were just a dream the three of us shared. But they did happen."

Erin and January have run away from the care home before, but this time they're not going back. With their friend Mouse in tow, they head downriver on a makeshift raft. Washed up on the mudflats, they meet a strange and dream-like girl, Heaven Eyes, and Grampa who wields an axe and digs for treasures in the black mud. As Erin befriends Heaven Eyes, January's suspicions about the old man grow. What is the secret he's hiding?

Adapted for the stage by internationally acclaimed children's author David Almond (Skellig, Song for Ella Grey).

Almond's eerie tale is an astonishing piece of writing The Guardian

Performed in English by a cast from the UK and Sweden and featuring original music and video. Suitable for ages 9+ years.

Recommended by the British Theatre Guide as one of the Best Family Shows in the North-East of 2014

I love TSF's production of Heaven Eyes. Fast-moving, fascinating, beautifully designed, directed and performed. It really does bring my story to life vividly. David Almond
