This company of Shell pupils worked together brilliantly to bring the story to life transforming the junk of Michael’s garage into the mysterious and haunting world of Skellig; part angel, part bird, part tramp, man, scrounger and healer. There was a wonderful sense of imaginative play that permeated the whole production and that immediately transported us back to childhood; a world where an old mop can become a sailing mast, and a tyre a deep, dark well, where books become birds in flight and an old oven is a gateway to another world.
