Three youngsters run away from their children’s home and sail down the River Tyne on a makeshift raft. Stuck on the mudflats, they meet a strange girl who lives with an old man, Grampa. The girl has a secret only Grampa knows …. and he’s not telling.

Adapted for the stage by children’s author David Almond (The Guardian Children’s Fiction Prize Winner 2015 and author of Skellig, which won the Whitbread Children’s Award) Heaven Eyes is a poetic but gritty story about young people trying to find their way in the world. Mysterious, heartbreaking and humorous in equal measure, this spellbinding and other-worldly story will touch the depth of your soul.

“Almond’s eerie tale is an astonishing piece of writing”
The Guardian
