Trunk Theatre performs educational fun shows for children all out of a trunk. The show can be performed anywhere from a school classroom to a theatre. After a great success at the Edinburgh Festival with our show ‘The Great Fire of London’ we are now touring the country bringing the fiery tale to children all across the land! Our aim is to create engaging and informative shows for young children but they’re also lightning fast fun for the whole family. Let me introduce you to the two actors of the show!
