Every week of Brisbane Festival hear a new tale inspired by the experiences of children in 2020.

World Premiere

Take the kids on an adventure to the beach, a fabulous birthday party, Grandma’s house, or to a faraway land with Wishful Bedtime Stories.

Director Bridget Boyle, writers David Burton and Clare McFadden, and Sound Designer Kim Bowers (Busty Beatz) have together taken the everyday and imagined places children longed for during lockdown and turned them into exquisite bedtime stories for 3 to 12 year olds.

Your children will be lulled to sleep with tales of change and stories of wonder, inspired by the experiences of children in 2020.
