Characters from Ruby's Wish

Ruby's Wish

Ruby is seven… and three quarters. She is everything a little girl should be; brazen, hopeful and bright-eyed.

But unlike most girls her age, Ruby is confined to a hospital bed. Ruby may not believe in fairytales, but she certainly believes in wishes.

When she is visited by Dot, a tongue-tied clown doctor, Ruby finds a way to use her greatest asset: her imagination.

As the pair form an unlikely friendship, the sterile hospital room becomes a fantasy wonderland of mop monsters, pillow clouds and imaginary paper friends - a place where only a tip truck worth of chocolate mousse can crush the bedroom baddies!

Ruby's Wish is a pocket-sized bundle of charm for children aged 7 and up. with exquisite puppetry, comedy, animation, beatboxing and clowning, this beautiful production proves there is no harm in believing.

Presented by Wesfarmers Arts and the AWESOME Festival.

By Holly Austin, Adriano Cappelletta & Jo Turner.
