HOW TO FLY 

LIKE A REINDEER

Reindeers fly. Peter Pan flies. Fairies fly. So why can't I?

Nina desperately wants to fly. To taste the clouds. To race a reindeer. To visit her Grandma at Christmas. Because Christmas time is Grandma time, but Nina’s just moved house and this year they’re 900 miles apart.
 

She flaps. She spins. She swoops. But will she fly?

How To Fly Like a Reindeer was a Hull Truck Theatre production created in Association with The Herd.

ACCESSIBILITY

Every performance of HOW TO FLY LIKE A REINDEER was relaxed - the audience area was well lit, it was ok to come, go and make noise if you needed to.

For those who like to know exactly what happens before they watch, Hull Truck created a downloadable social story. 

DATES

HOW TO FLY LIKE A REINDEER premiered in Hull Truck Theatre's Studio Theatre for 3 weeks in Winter 2019.
