Nona is lonely. She has had to move in with her Aunt and her cousins. Miss Happiness and Miss Flower, two Japanese dolls, have arrived by post, they are lonely too. Perhaps by making a proper Japanese doll’s house, Nona can turn this new place into a home for everyone. Exploring the challenge of change – how curiosity, bravery and books can help to overcome almost anything.

Directed and adapted by Deirdre Dwyer for 6 - 8 year olds, from the book by Rumer Godden, with performances by Rosie O’Regan and Julie Sharkey, and hand-crafted puppets by Olan Wrynn.
