Tree Child


Tree Child
A play by Joseph Coelho

Every library has a deep dark corner where a child can become lost in another world. A corner where trees can become monsters, where squirrels can become wicked and where tales of family can become rooted.

Tree Child is a story of Growing up, of learning to live with life’s knots and gnarls and seeking out its blossoms.
A mythical adventure in storytelling and puppetry.
