It’s 1967 and the space race is on. Alfie White is crazy about space and his dad is training to be the first man on the moon.

At least that’s what Alfie tells his schoolmates. In fact, his dad has disappeared without trace, as if swallowed up by a black hole.

Together with his best friend Meg, Alfie sets out on a daring mission to find his dad. But where on earth, or in space, is he?

Alfie White: Space Explorer, which comes to Pyramid on Monday 24 October, is a cosmic tale of adventure and discovery for everyone aged five and up.

It’s Tall Stories’ latest production and had a brilliant run at the 2015 Edinburgh Fringe with great feedback from audiences and reviewers alike.

Broadway Baby described the show as “a thrilling everyday adventure that is engaging for all ages” while The Stage said it was “an accomplished piece of children’s storytelling theatre” which “holds the children in rapt and often amused attention”.
