McDowall Print presents The Road That Wasn’t There.

A Trick of the Light production in association with Tour- Makers and Zanetti Productions


This is a story about a girl who followed a map off the edge of the world…


From the makers of The Bookbinder (Southland Arts Festival, 2016) comes an award-winning fairy tale drawn from the twitchy edges of children’s literature – a dark world reminiscent of the works of Neil Gaiman and the late (great) Margaret Mahy.


Combining puppetry, shadow play, and live music, The Road That Wasn’t There is a captivating cross-over work for adults and older children (8 years+).

"Thoroughly enchanting and totally engrossing...a must see show." - The Dominion Post

"Charming, funny and haunting in equal measure.... a storytelling triumph.” - Word on the Street
