Yoshi and Hani are as different as chalk is to cheese: One big, one small. One noisy, one quiet. Side by side they play by the blue sea, run through the green fields and dance in the yellow sunshine.
But one day the sky turns grey and everything starts to change… Will the sun ever come out again?
Yellow is the Colour of Sunshine is a vibrant new play for children aged 3 and above from award-winning playwright Brendan Murray.
The production uses spoken word, sign language, movement and stunning Japanese-inspired design to tell the charming story of two friends and is performed by a cast of three: Connor Bryson, a graduate from the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland’s inaugural class of BA Performance in British Sign Language, Phoebe Stapleton and Holly Irving.
“We’ve been on an exciting journey with our creative team which involves bringing Brendan’s superbly playful script to life with striking Japanese design and wonderful original music by Christella Litris,” explains Wendy Harris, Artistic Director of Leeds-based production company tutti frutti.
“This includes working with a d/Deaf performer in addition to a dancer and spoken word performer – to really open up communication through a production that
speaks in many languages to create a vibrant and magical show for children
and their adults.”
Yellow is the Colour of Sunshine opens at The Carriageworks, Leeds on 18th May. Book online at carriageworkstheatre.org.uk or call the Box Office on 0113 376 0318.
