Cicada

Adapted from CICADA by Shaun Tan.

Cicada tell story. Story Good. Story simple. Story even human can understand. Tok! Tok! Tok!

So begins the story of a dutiful cicada who works away in a grey office year after year.
 
Overlooked and unappreciated by his co-workers, Cicada weaves a dream of escape, keeping his secrets hidden until the day something truly extraordinary begins to happen…
 
Winner of the Children’s Book Council Award for Best Picture Book in 2019, this new adaptation brings master-storyteller Shaun Tan’s much-loved Cicada to life on the stage with exquisite puppetry and visual storytelling by some of WA’s leading theatre-makers.
 
A small story of epic proportions, Cicada is an enchanting tale of difference, resilience and the light we all have inside ourselves.
