Bambert is an impossibly small man with an enormous love of writing. Tucked away in his attic, his stories’ characters are his only companions. Then one day, Bambert decides to set his stories free, in the hope that they will find a home.

This internationally lauded novel is brought to life as a thrillingly inventive and remarkable production, interweaving the art of puppetry with lively storytelling. Balancing humour and emotion whilst touching on some of history’s darker moments, Bambert reminds us of the power of kindness and how we are all connected to the world.

Adapted from Bamberts Buch der verschollenen Geschichten by Reinhardt Jung. Adapted by Dan Giovannoni & Luke Kerridge.

“Barking Gecko has produced a small, perfectly formed masterpiece that imaginatively explores the idea that stories can change the world.” The Australian
