Imagine being told to leave your home... Imagine American soldiers occupying your house and land... Imagine being 12 and angry, with only a cat to tell your secrets to... Well it all happened (most of it anyway) in Slapton Sands, Devon, in 1944. Based on Michael Morpurgo's The Amazing Story of Adolphus Tips, 946 explodes everything we thought we knew about the D-Day landings. With signature Kneehigh sorcery, 946 uses music, puppetry and foolishness to tell this tale of war, prejudice and love. Tender, political and surprisingly romantic, this story speaks to us all and will finally reveal the secrets the US and British governments tried to keep quiet. The Asylum is Kneehigh's award winning, jaw-dropping, spirit-lifting nomadic theatre space.Performers Craig Johnson, Giles King, Patrycja Kujwska, Mike Shepherd, Ian Ross, Andrew Durand, Neuti Gatwa, Kyla Goodey.
