Eddie and the Slumber Sisters by Anita Vettesse

Is it bad?
Do we need to step in?
I think so
What shall we bring…
A red kite, a seaside scene, sunshine from handbag No 4 and a graveyard
Must we bring the graveyard?
Of course, without that she'll never get any better…  
- The Slumber Sisters in conversation

Meet the Slumber Sisters. An all-singing trio whose job it is to monitor our dreams and ensure that our night-time wanderings remain healthy and safe. Armed with an infinite supply of remedies, they arrive to create dreams that will help us through difficult times.

Eddie soon catches their attention. She might be quiet and reserved by day but at night Eddie's dreams are increasingly wild, chaotic and sometimes terrifying. It's been like this ever since her gran died. As Eddie's grief comes out in force at night, the Slumber Sisters decide it's time to intervene.

An interactive show that with warm-heart, songs and humour explores grieving through the eyes of a child.

Presented by Catherine Wheels Theatre Company and National Theatre of Scotland.

Cast includes Chiara Sparkes as Eddie and Angela Darcy, India Shaw-Smith and Colette Dalal Dchantcho as The Slumber Sisters.
