A new stage production of Aston’s Stones, adapted from the book by Lotta Geffenblad, will appear at Bath’s egg theatre from Thursday 6th June to Saturday 8th June. This heart-warming story for audiences over 3 years of age is told using funky live music and charming performances by Theater Pero from Sweden.
Aston is a little dog who wants to look after all the stones he can find. Some are big and some are small. One is sad and another one feels cold. All of them need to be taken care of. Every stone gets to go home to Aston’s warm and cosy bed. His parents, although very patient and understanding, are gradually getting worried about the number of stones in their living room. They are hoping they might be able to find somewhere more suitable for Aston’s stones to live.
Reflecting on the capacity young children have to show love and empathy, a trait which adults sometimes find harder to express, Aston’s Stones reminds audiences how important it is to see and to appreciate the value in small things – even a little stone!
