Edward the Emu
Based on the books by Sheena Knowles and Rod Clement. Written for the stage and directed by Eva Di Cesare
The award-winning team behind Possum Magic return to bring a unique imagining of two beloved Australian picture books, Edward the Emu and Edwina the Emu, to life on stage in a heartfelt, clever and funny new tale.
Edward is bored with the lot he lives on. Being the only emu at the zoo leaves him feeling glum and under the impression that the grass is greener in another animal’s enclosure. Convinced that the other creatures are more popular, Edward breaks ranks in search of fun and finds Edwina along the way!
Come on an adventure with the emus as they hilariously navigate their own feathered existential crises, seeking to find their place in the world. Meanwhile, the zoo keepers are in hot pursuit to restore order to the zoo.
Featuring exceptional, world-class puppetry, an original score and inventive storytelling, the emus’ journey of hijinks and tenderness leads them to discover that the best thing you can be is…you!
