Zoe’s Peculiar Journey Through Time – 2023 Tour

Toured Sep & Oct 2023

After its premiere and run at the Burgtheater Vienna in 2021/22, we brought Zoe home and toured the show across the UK and Norway. Venues included: Southbank Centre, Theatre Royal Plymouth, Kilden Teater (Kristiansand, Norway), Polka Theatre and Lakeside Arts Nottingham.

Zoe loves meeting up with her friends, but one day as she’s getting ready, something very peculiar happens… 

Catapulted one hundred years into the future, Zoe finds herself on a mysterious island made entirely of plastic waste. She doesn’t have time to think before her real adventures begin and she sets off to explore, solving riddles, meeting wonderful creatures, and helping new friends out of trouble. 

Will she find her way home? Join us in this magical tale exploring themes of friendship and the environment, featuring Theatre-Rites’ award-winning puppetry. 

There was a Signed performance at every UK venue. 

Zoe’s Peculiar Journey Through Time was originally a Theatre-Rites and Burgtheater Vienna co-production
