EMIL AND THE DETECTIVES
Never underestimate the determination of a child! 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?
Kästner’s 1929 novella is more than a ‘good romp’, it broke ground for the independent-children-versus-devious-adults story genre. Streetwise city kids, a hard-working single mother and Emil’s past brush with the law add grit and nuance to this satisfying tale.
How do we find our friends in the world? How do we work together to defeat tricksters?

In Slingsby’s signature intimate theatrical style, Emil and The Detectives is told by two skilled actors immersed in smoke and mirrors, miniature worlds and a cinematic score. Dark and light, intrigue and delight for audiences aged eight and upwards.
We need your support to be able to present this wonder-filled new theatrical adventure.
Creative Partnerships Australia’s Plus1 initiative will match all donations to this campaign up to $25,000. This is an incredible chance to effectively double your gift to us.
Our new giving circles allow us to strengthen our relationship with the passionate individuals and families who believe deeply in the theatre we create.
Please join us!
