Slingsby’s Emil And The Detectives

South Australia’s Slingsby Theatre Company presents emotionally challenging and engaging storytelling in rich live theatrical realms. Slingsby’s original productions are crafted to challenge and inspire adult and older family audiences.

Slingsby will bring its award-winning production of Emil and The Detectives to India in January 2019, along with a series of workshops. In Slingsby’s signature intimate theatrical style, Emil and The Detectives is told by two skilled actors immersed in smoke and mirrors, miniature worlds and a cinematic score.

Erich Kästner’s 1929 novella is more than a ‘good romp’; it broke ground for the independent-children-versus-devious-adults story genre. Streetwise city kids, a hard-working single mother and Emil’s past brush with the law add grit and nuance to this satisfying tale.

Dark and light, intrigue and delight for audiences aged eight and upwards.
