“ EDWARD THE EMU WAS SICK OF THE ZOO, THERE WAS NOWHERE TO GO, THERE WAS NOTHING TO DO, AND COMPARED TO THE SEALS, THAT LIVED RIGHT NEXT DOOR, WELL BEING AN EMU WAS FRANKLY A BORE ” – SHEENA KNOWLES
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 his lot. 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!
Meanwhile, the zookeepers are in hot pursuit to restore order to the zoo. Come on an adventure with the emus as they hilariously navigate their feathered existential crises, seeking to find their place in the world.
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!
