They say you can get lost in a good book. But it’s worse getting lost in a bad one… 

From award-winning company Trick of the Light Theatre, comes a story of mystery, magic and mayhem. The Bookbinder weaves shadowplay, paper art, puppetry and music into an original dark fairytale in the vein of Coraline and Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell. An inventive performance for adventurous adults and curious children.
