For children newborn–five years old and their grownups
Devised & directed by Megan Alrutz. Conceived & commissioned in partnership with The PaperBoats
A play about the evolving nature of friendship, Gimme Please follows the journey of two friends—from initial meeting to lasting connection. Audiences are invited to watch and explore as the two friends pretend, provoke, and persist in getting what they want and need from the world and each other. Through the use of live music, as well as light and magic, this story draws audiences in with its deep sense of play and honest exploration of growing up and finding your path.
