Our littlest audience members will be delighted by this award-winning story of a lonely man set in his ways, and his friendship with a balloon that opens his heart. It’s an uplifting story about a magical balloon that blows through a window and insists on becoming friends.

Sweet, inventive, and packed with physical comedy, this play explores the power of friendship in a way even young children can understand – and demonstrates that, with a little imagination and acceptance, companionship is everywhere.
