946: The Amazing Story of Adolphus Tips

946: The Amazing Story of Adolphus TipsA Kneehigh production in association with Birmingham Repertory Theatre and Berkeley Repertory Theatre.

Based on the beloved book by War Horse author Michael Morpurgo, 946 explores everything we thought we knew about the D-Day landings in this tender musical tale of love and war.

Imagine being twelve and having soldiers occupying your house and land, with only your cat to tell your secrets.

Kneehigh are the theatrical alchemists whose Brief Encounter wowed audiences on The Wallis’ Bram Goldsmith Theater stage in 2014. Originally produced by The Wallis’ Artistic Director—and former Kneehigh Executive Producer—Paul Crewes, 946 is a tender coming-of-age tale that uncovers the secrets behind World War II’s D-Day landings. Set in the idyllic seaside village of Slapton Sands, the lives of Lily, her family, and her fiercely independent cat Tips are barely touched by war until American soldiers occupy their house and surrounding land.  With a live onstage swing band, enchanting puppetry and Kneehigh’s signature stage sorcery, director Emma Rice configures a story of love, war and prejudice that crosses borders both geographical and generational.  

Presenter / Producer: The Wallis
