In 2009 we were given the opportunity to remount our 2006 production The Gift. We did this with gusto! Rewriting the script, redesigning the set and we were joined by two new actors who were given a lot of wrapping paper to play with!

The story follows two children; Lion and Rita who receive a mysterious gift on Christmas morning. Its a giant cardboard box with nothing inside. Their disappointment quickly leads into a game and before they know it their box is taking them on the adventure of a life time.
