Duck, Death and the Tulip
By Wolf Erlbruch
Adapted and Directed for the stage by John Sheedy
Inspired by the picture book Duck, Death and the Tulip by award winning German illustrator and author, Wolf Erlbuch, this production offered a thoughtful, tender and intriguing perspective on a sensitive subject not often explored in children’s theatre.
“Who are you? Why are you creeping along behind me?”
“Good. You’ve finally noticed me,” said Death. “I am Death.”
Duck was scared stiff. You could hardly blame her for that.
Barking Gecko’s stunning adaptation featured a live orchestra composing an original score bringing to life the story of Duck, Death and the Tulip in an elegant, straight forward and, above all, life-affirming way.
