Kneehigh at The Globe

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 novel The Amazing Story of Adolphus Tips, 946 explodes everything we thought we knew about the D-Day landings, using 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 finally reveals the secrets the US and British governments tried to keep quiet.
