A Note from Kid Koala

“One of my fondest memories from childhood was watching Charlie Chaplin films. I remember my whole family, kids, parents AND grandparents, huddled around the screen smiling and laughing along as the story unfolded. Since those days, something about the silent film format has always struck a chord with me. When I was writing Nufonia Must Fall, I always imagined the book being a kind of paperback silent movie. I am so thrilled to be working with director K.K. Barrett, who has had a hand in creating some of my favourite movies and many of the most captivating cinematic visuals in the past 15 years. It has been an amazing experience to see the story literally come to life through this amazing team of set designers, puppeteers and performers. Don’t be fooled by its heavy sounding title, Nufonia Must Fall is just a good old fashioned love story and I hope that audiences will have as much fun watching the show as we have had putting it together!”
