Explorers aged 6 – 11 are needed to join a secret agency and take part in a mission, using their super sleuth skills to uncover evidence for the existence of Borrowers (the small people who live under the floorboards).
Based on The Borrowers by Mary Norton, The Great Escape - A Borrower's Tale leads children on a fully supervised adventure in a quest to find Bob the Borrower. They will discover tiny clues and escape the evil clutches of the KBD movement (Keep Borrower's Down) along the way.
Developed at Battersea Arts Centre in 2010 by Kazuko Hohki, winner of the 2010 Foster’s Edinburgh Comedy God, The Great Escape (A Borrower’s Tale) has also shown at Unicorn theatre and Southbank Centre, and is returning to Battersea Arts Centre as part of our Autumn Heritage season.
