Specially commissioned by Carriageworks Theatre, we brought to life the much-loved multi award-winning book So Much by Trish Cooke with a performed reading for children aged 3+ and their families and carers at the theatre.
Mum and baby are home alone when – DING DONG! – Auntie and then Uncle and Nannie and Gran-Gran and the cousins come to visit. They all want to hug and kiss and squeeze and eat the baby right up… because everybody loves the baby SO MUCH.
This ground breaking story is a tender, exuberant celebration of modern family life. Local author Trish Cooke’s rhythmic story captures the joy of being a baby in a large extended family – a baby who knows that he is absolutely, utterly adored.
The story was charmingly performed by Lladel Bryant (incorporating British Sign Language), with poignant direction by Dermot Daly, rhythmic soundscape of Tayo Akinbode and set design by Warda Abbasi. This joyous sharing of this much-loved story was followed by a craft activity.
