The Way Back Home by I Theatre {Giveaway}

Way Back Home 01

You may have read and loved this inter-galactic tale by Oliver Jeffers – now see THE WAY BACK HOME brought to life on stage!

Created and performed by UK company Big Wooden Horse and Theatre Royal Winchester, this heartwarming production with an unlikely friendship between an alien and a boy lost in space is sure to be a hit with families.


One day a boy finds a plane in his cupboard.He flies his plane higher and higher until he runs out of petrol and lands on the moon.

He is frightened, lost and alone until a passing friendly Martian lands there too! Who is the strange alien? Can they be friends? And how will they find their way back home?


This exciting new production for families and young children has been created by the team behind the hit shows Don’t Let The Pigeon Drive The Bus and The Night Before Christmas

Writer and director Adam Bampton-Smith said: “Oliver Jeffers’ fantastic picture book is perfect for adapting into a live stage version. The story of friendship between the boy and alien is one that everyone can relate to, coupled with those wonderful images which we have incorporated into the stage design.

    My eldest son will definitely love to fly to Moon. He always tell me that he loves me to the Moon and back. If Mummy wants the Moon, he will climb up the ladder and pluck it for me. So with the aeroplane, he doesn’t need the ladder anymore. So imaginative and so sweet of him right !?!

    I actually asked him where would he go if he had an aeroplane, and this was his exact answer “Ok if cars are expensive, how can I even have an aeroplane? But if i could have one, I’d fly to the arctic! I read that it is a very far away place and it’s on top of the world, so the aeroplane could fly me there!”

    My children like to fly to dragon-shaped traditional sand-based playground @ Blk 28 Toa Payoh Lorong 6. They get to play with sands, climb up and down under the hot sun. There are two little plastic rides in the shapes of a seahorse and a pony for the children to sit on. So carefree !!! It was also our childhood memories favourite dragon playground too…
