946 Adapted by Michael Morpurgo and Emma Rice from The Amazing Story of Adolphus Tips

Imagine being told to leave your home…

Imagine American soldiers occupying your house and land…

Imagine being 12 and angry, with only a cat to tell your secrets to…

Well it all happened (most of it anyway) in Slapton Sands, Devon, in 1944. Based on Michael Morpurgo’s The Amazing Story of Adolphus Tips, 946 explodes everything we thought we knew about the D-Day landings. With signature Kneehigh sorcery, 946 uses music, puppetry and foolishness to tell this tale of war, prejudice and love. Tender, political and surprisingly romantic, this story speaks to us all and will finally reveal the secrets the US and British governments tried to keep quiet.

Directed by Emma Rice, with a Kneehigh cast that includes Mike Shepherd, Craig Johnson, Giles King, Patrycja Kujawska and Katy Owen, composition by Stu Barker, design by Lez Brotherston and lighting design by Malcolm Rippeth, this promises to be an event to remember in the enchanted setting of The Lost Gardens of Heligan.

Make a day of it: explore the extraordinary gardens, feast on tasty home-grown produce in the tearooms and later on, refresh yourself at the legendary Asylum bar, before enjoying the show!
