The Secret of Q
Het Filiaal (Netherlands)
Theatre - Thursday June 12th @ 7.30pm
at Linenhall Theatre
G is 10 and has never been outside. That's just the safest thing to do, says Q. He's the boss of the town where G lives with her father, mother, and grandfather. As long as you stay inside, nothing can go wrong. Those are Q's rules, and everyone keeps them - until G's grandfather remembers something and suddenly disappears. For the first time in her life, G breaks the rules and goes outside: looking for both her grandfather and the secret of Q... An exciting thriller for young and old - with cameras, puppets, models, and projection
