They say you can get lost in a good book. But it's worse getting lost in a bad one…

From New Zealand's award-winning company, Trick of the Light Theatre comes a story of the last brave young man to hold the role of bookbinder apprentice. Full of mystery, magic and mayhem, The Bookbinder is an inventive one-man performance that weaves shadowplay, paper art, puppetry, and music into an original dark fairytale in the vein of Neil Gaiman. For curious children and adventurous adults!
