"Growing up is the most exciting adventure of all."
The National Theatre's exciting new family show, Emil and the Detectives, opens this November.
Join young Emil as he says goodbye to his mother, leaves his small town and sets off on a journey that will change his life.
When his money is stolen on the train by a mysterious stranger, Emil thinks he's lost everything. But as he starts tracking down the thief, he soon discovers he's not alone in the big city after all.
For this adaptation of Erich Kästner's classic children's adventure story about a boy learning to rely on himself – and on his new friends – the Olivier stage transforms into 1920s Berlin: a place full of surprises and danger, where everything moves at the speed of your imagination.
Make sure you're among the first to experience the National Theatre's new family show, the latest in the exciting tradition of War Horse and His Dark Materials.
Suitable for everyone aged 7 and over.
