Growing up is the most exciting adventure of all
Join young Emil as he says goodbye to his mother, leaves his small town and sets off on a journey that will change his life.
When his money is stolen on the train by a mysterious stranger, Emil thinks he’s lost everything. But as he starts tracking down the thief, he soon discovers that he’s not alone in the big city after all.
For this classic tale of a boy learning to rely on himself – and on his new friends – the Olivier stage transforms into 1920s Berlin: a place full of surprises and danger, where everything moves at the speed of your imagination.
Make sure you’re among the first to experience the National Theatre’s new family show, the latest in the exciting tradition of War Horse and His Dark Materials.
Suitable for everyone aged 7 and over.
Please note that there are video and flashing light effects in this production.
During the run of Emil and the Detectives there will be plenty to keep everyone entertained.
