The world’s stories have gone missing and inspectors Dexter Sharpe and Poppy Hasluck need your help to uncover who is responsible!
Become the newest recruit of The Bureau of Untold Stories and join our daring detectives as they set out to solve their ever-growing pile of cases in this interactive, imagination-igniting performance. Students become part of the story as they bring to life a series of different tales from ridiculous news articles and warped fairy tales to legendary epics.
Students will learn about the inner workings of English and Literature through language devices, creative writing and thinking, story structure and effective communication. Dexter and Poppy aim to have students sharing their own stories throughout the performance and within their own communities after the show.
