Crows Nest Theatre are making their Guildford Fringe Festival debut with their children’s show Alma. Created for children five years and above, Alma is an energetic and interactive show helping children understand loss and bereavement.

Alma is looking for Grandpa. He has gone away without saying goodbye and everyone is using words Alma doesn’t understand. So, with a hop, skip and a song, Alma sets off on world-wide adventure to find him, remembering all her fun journeys with Grandpa and making new friends along the way! Though music, puppetry and song, Alma’s story is a touching celebration of life, whilst offering a heart warming exploration of grief.

Crows Nest Theatre Company was formed by three artists who believe difficult subjects are important to talk about. So through storytelling, music and puppetry, Crows Nest will shed some light on the darker corners of our world.
