The Road That Wasn't There

9 Herschell Street, Napier

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

In New Zealand, there are some 56,000 kilometres of paper roads – streets and towns that exist only on surveyors’ maps. Or do they? A young woman strays from the beaten track and finds herself in a paper world. It seems to be a land of possibility, but she soon discovers that things that happen in the fictional world can have frighteningly real consequences.

From award-winning company Trick of the Light Theatre ('The Bookbinder') comes an original 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 curious tale for intrepid children (aged 8+) and adventurous adults.

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

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