Based on the novella by Erich Kästner, Adapted for the stage by Nicki Bloom

Never underestimate the determination of a child!  Young Emil catches a train to visit family, but something valuable is stolen and Emil ends up alone in the big city, lost and desperate. A group of quick-thinking and resourceful children rallies around, and the thief soon discovers Emil was not such an easy target. Can a bunch of kids work together to uncover and outsmart the criminal?

EMIL AND THE DETECTIVES is a journey about discovery and self-discovery, the value of friendships and taking risks, and the empowerment of young people.  In Slingsby’s signature intimate theatrical style, the story is told by two skilled actors combining the thrilling intrigue of a classic caper with an evocative film noir design, complete with smoke and mirrors, miniature worlds and a cinematic score.
