By Erich Kästner, adapted for the stage by Nicki Bloom
14 to 18 July 2021 Cremorne Theatre, QPAC
Emil and the Detectives comes to QPAC next month in an outstanding piece of children’s theatre featuring a streetwise city kid and a sinister stranger.
Based on Erich Kästner’s 1929 novella, this story broke ground for the independent-children-versus-devious-adults genre. This production is an uplifting, riveting and empowering look at the value of teamwork and friendships, taking risks, and the empowerment of young people. A theatrical delight for young and old, not to be missed.
“Emil and the Detectives is an outstanding piece of children’s theatre which makes it an outstanding piece of theatre and an experience to be savoured by all.” InDaily (Adelaide)
