By Tortoise in a Nutshell with Cumbernauld Theatre

Combining puppetry, immersive soundscapes and multimedia technology, visual theatre company Tortoise in a Nutshell, build an entire world in front of the audience’s eyes.

With life changed forever, Joe recounts and attempts to process how he lost his perfect town, and his sister, and in turn addresses what community means.
