Shiny can be seen first at The Core at Corby Cube’s studio space tomorrow (Friday) and then at The Castle theatre in Wellingborough on Saturday, January 30.

In a long forgotten room, two people find friendship, joy and treasure. From ordinary brown boxes come an extraordinary array of colour, sound and texture to delight and engage.

Children are invited to watch and play as all that glitters unfolds before their eyes.
