Catherine Wheels Theatre Company and National Theatre of Scotland present

Eddie & the Slumber Sisters

Is it bad? YES

Do we need to step in? I THINK SO

What shall we bring? A red kite, a seaside scene, sunshine from handbag No 4 and a graveyard

Must we bring the graveyard? Of course, without that she’ll never get any better

Meet the Slumber Sisters. An all-singing trio whose job it is to monitor our dreams and ensure that our night-time wanderings remain healthy and safe. Armed with an infinite supply of remedies, they arrive to create dreams that will help us through difficult times.

Eddie soon catches their attention. She might be quiet and reserved by day but at night Eddie’s dreams are increasingly wild, chaotic and sometimes terrifying. It’s been like this ever since her gran died. As Eddie’s grief comes out in force at night, the Slumber Sisters decide it’s time to intervene.

An interactive show from award-winning Catherine Wheels Theatre Company that with warm-heart, songs and humour explores grieving through the eyes of a child. Eddie and the Slumber Sisters is ideal for the young at heart aged 8 and over.
