The Lost Letter Office 2020

The Lost Letter Office by Jen McArthur and Renata Hopkins

A young girl writes a magical letter to brighten the day of an elderly neighbour. But when the letter’s adventurous journey makes its address unreadable, it gets sent to The Lost Letter Office. Can the bumbling sleuths who work there help the letter on its way? Or will it be enveloped in their snail-mail chaos forever?

The Lost Letter Office is a love letter to handwritten letters. Using magic, movement, music and clown performance, it explores how these paper creations can deliver powerful gifts of love.

Cost – $9 per person. One adult free with every 10 paying students.

Relaxed Performance: 19th November 11.30am performance in Wellington is a Relaxed Performance, designed for those who may find a traditional theatre experience overwhelming. The lights will not be dimmed so much, the sound will not be so loud. There will also be a chill out zone outside the theatre and a social script will be provided well in advance to familiarise your students with the venue and plot lines.
