Once there was a boy who was always looking up. He dreamt of having a star as a friend. This is the story of his adventure.

Based on the beloved book by award-winning Irish author Oliver Jeffers, this non-verbal adaptation combines puppetry and a magical original score by Colm Mac Con Iomaire. Directed by Marc Mac Lochlainn, Branar’s signature storytelling creates a show that reminds us all to follow our dreams.

This show was created with support from the Arts Council of Ireland and is kindly supported by Culture Ireland.
