From the book by Michael Morpurgo, adapted by Daniel Jameson

Tomas hates school, hates books and hates stories. Stories are just for “Little Snotties”! He is happier clambering in the mountains like a goat or tobogganing with his Dad.

That is until the Unicorn Lady comes to town and reels him in with her irresistible magic tales. But then disaster strikes and puts everything that matters most in Tomas’s life in terrible danger…

Theatre Alibi have been making work for adult and family audiences from its base at Emmanuel Hall in Exeter since 1982.

Theatre Alibi are contemporary storytellers, creating  work for all ages that moves freely between the intimate and the epic and aspires to be inventive, joyful, moving, vivid, intricate and ambitious. Our productions are marked by a passion for the live event – actors as storytellers absolutely present with their audience, live music, a delight in revealing acts of transformation that would often be confined to the wings and a level of inventiveness that allows us to embrace action that might seem to be unstageable. The company integrates a wide variety of art forms into its work and recent productions have featured animation, film, puppetry, photography and music both live and recorded.

I Believe in Unicorns is sponsored by Minuteman Press Bath
