On the day of the famous annual fair, the town of Faldum receives an unexpected visitor. A wanderer offers to grant a wish to anyone who wants one. Before long, the city is transformed. Mansions stand where mud huts once squatted, and beggars ride around in horse drawn carriages. And one man wishes to be turned into a mountain.

Through a mix of poetry and rhyme, laughter, story-telling, live music and just a smattering of metaphysical philosophy, Toby Thompson beautifully evokes this strange and wondrous story to gently engage young minds on themes of needing and wanting and what makes us truly happy.Written and Performed by Toby Thompson. Based on Faldum, a fairy tale by Hermann Hesse.Presented by the egg and Travelling Light Theatre Company, co-commissioned by Brighton Dome and Imaginate
