I Wish I Was A Mountain
A UNIQUE NEW SHOW FOR YOUNG AUDIENCES; AN ENCHANTING CONCOCTION OF POETRY AND RHYME, MUSIC AND STORY-TELLING…
Directed and mentored by Lee Lyford and designed by Anisha Fields, Toby has devised a unique one-man show for young audiences based on Herman Hesse's fairy tale, 'Faldum'. Through a mix of poetry and rhyme, laughter, story-telling and live music Toby beautifully evokes this strange and wondrous story to gently engage young minds on themes of needing and wanting and what makes us truly happy.
I Wish I Was A Mountain...
"There were tales about lions and tales about tigers; tales about giants and tales about spiders
There were tales about angels and banshees and dragons, and fearful birds of prey with gargantuan talons
There were tales about unicorns and tales about fairies; tales that were humorous, tales that were scary
There were all sorts of stories in this book that I found, but in my opinion none of them were quite so profound
So intriguing, so perplexing so deliciously astounding
As the one about the gentleman who wished he was a mountain."
