Emil and the Detectives


By Erich Kästner, adapted for the stage by Nicki Bloom

Young Emil catches a train to visit family in the big city. Something valuable is stolen, but the thief soon discovers Emil was not such an easy target. A group of quick-thinking and resourceful children rallies around.

Can a bunch of kids work together to uncover and outsmart the true criminal? Told in Slingsby’s signature intimate theatrical style, Emil and The Detectives features two skilled actors immersed in smoke and mirrors, miniature worlds and a magical cinematic score.
