WINNER OF 2018 BEST PRODUCTION FOR CHILDREN AND YOUNG PEOPLE – CATS AWARD

Dare to dream, and boldly go!

Once upon a time, approximately twenty years from now, Yorick stands alone, suited up and ready to blast off in a rocket on his celebrated journey to Mars.

Space Ape is a science fiction storytelling performance for everyone aged 6+ that will take the whole family on a journey through art, science, and philosophy, and on a mission with a very special Ape.  Andy Cannon, Scotland’s one of Scotland’s most-loved storytellers, tells the tale, sharing his passion for space travel, using everyday objects and animation.

Compellingly evocative” – read The Herald review here.

“One of our most gifted storytellers…Andy Cannon has us spellbound.”
