Will Bambert’s stories ever find a home?
Discover the profoundly inspiring story of Bambert – an impossibly small man with an enormous love for writing. Sending his stories into the world on tiny balloons, Bambert hopes that whoever finds them will return them with a stamp from the city they landed in. But will anyone return them?
Reinhardt Jung’s internationally lauded novel is brought to life as a thrillingly inventive and remarkable production that will enchant children and parents alike.
Winner of the 2016 Helpmann Award for Best Children’s Presentation and nominated for Best New Australian Work, Bambert’s Book of Lost Stories brings together Australia’s most extraordinary creative minds to realise an exquisite production that reminds us how stories connect us to the world and ultimately, the power of kindness.
Adapted for the stage by Dan Giovannoni & Luke Kerridge from Bambert’s Buch der verschollenen Geschicten by Reinhardt Jung.
Presented by Sydney Opera House and Barking Gecko Theatre Company
