Cicada - Barking Gecko Theatre

9 Jul - 16 Jul

Based on the award-winning picture book by Shaun Tan





Barking Gecko Theatre is presenting a limited season of Cicada this July.

Based on master-storyteller Shaun Tan's award-winning and much-loved picture book of the same name, Cicada is a funny, touching and entertaining tale that is sure to delight the whole family these school holidays.

Adapted for the stage by Arielle Gray, Luke Kerridge and Tim Watts, this exciting production brings Cicada to life on the stage with exquisite puppetry and visual storytelling by some of WA's leading theatre-makers.

Cicada tell story. Story Good. Story simple. Story even human can understand. Tok! Tok! Tok!

So begins the story of a dutiful cicada who works away in a grey office year after year.

Overlooked and unappreciated by his co-workers, Cicada weaves a dream of escape, keeping his secrets hidden until the day something truly extraordinary begins to happen…

A small story of epic proportions, Cicada is an enchanting tale of difference, resilience and the light we all have inside ourselves.

Tickets are on sale now through www.barkinggecko.com.au/performances/season-2022/cicada. Early bookings are advised - 7 shows only!
