On the edges of cities, down dusty roads and through dense thickets of scrub are secret places. One such place is near a small forgotten town – the lonely creek bed of Washpool Gully. Here, the rumbling of engines has woken something from its long slumber and the creek bed is coming to life. 

The Riddle of Washpool Gully is a modern classic of children’s theatre and combines richly imaginative puppets and miniature sets by Terrapin (Scaredy Cat, The Paper Escaper) and Dead Puppet Society (The Wider Earth) to give voice to the mythological creatures of this country’s expansive landscape.  

Vividly imagined and meticulously realised with beauty, wit and immense heart
