Lost and Found - Exciting new adaptation for M.I.F.

Will is partnering with the Manchester International Festival and Gruff Rhys (Super Furry Animals) on a wonderful new adaptation of Oliver Jeffer's worldwide best-selling book 'Lost and Found'.

The production will take place within a 270 wrap-around projected world, combining traditional puppetry techniques with state-of-the-art mapped projection.

The production will stick very close to both the style and the tone of the original book, creating what Will calls 'the space between the illustrations' to tell this heartfelt story about what appears to be a lost penguin and his friendship with a boy who helps him get back home.

 

Slated for production at brand new venue 'The Factory' opening in Manchester in 2023/24

Bad-Books - New Publishing Venture  Launching World Book Day 4.3.21

National Literacy Trust research found that  being given the opportunity to read ebooks had a positive impact on children's reading attitudes, particularly for boys, and those who began to project as less engaged readers.

Will is about to launch a series of books aimed at 7-11 yrs, especially for reluctant readers.

 

'Bad-Books' is an indie publishing label for Will's books, in both e-book and print form. Starting with the first season in a long running adventure series, 'Re-Evolution' imagines different versions of Earth where humans are no longer dominant.

 

Look out later this year for two comedy adventures 'The Partially Invisible Boy' and 'Fairy Boy'  - soon to be followed in 2021 with the frankly ridiculous comedy series  'Farty-Arty' about a boy with superflatual powers! (I know...)  To learn more or sign up for your free book, click here.    

 

'Re-Evolution - The Dino-Dimension!!'

OTIS IN LOGO COLOUR.tif

Another dimension where dinosaurs evolve to rule the Earth.  Three children flipped from this world to that. First they have to survive. Then they have to get home….

 

What if Dinosaurs ruled the Earth? When Jem, Cat and Cain are accidentally sent to Tyros, a parallel world, that is exactly what they find. The brutal King Tyrone and his army of blood-thirsty Tyrannosaurs hold the population of dinosaurs and flying humans captive. After Tyrone takes Cain’s Wormhole Generator he holds their only chance of escape. Jem must become a hero and do battle with the most terrifying creatures. Will they ever see their homes again?  Or will they die trying…

 

‘TYRANNO-TERROR’ is the first of SIX thrilling adventures in Series 1 of the ‘RE-EVOLUTION’ action series. If you liked ‘Beast Quest’ and want to be immersed in a brand-new world of incredible creatures, then ‘RE-EVOLUTION’ is for you!

DENNIS the Musical?

In his very own original indie-rock musical!

Will has teamed up with Mega-Producers Selladoor to bring Dennis to the stage in a way never imagined before. This is no 'foam head' style children's show, but rather a full-on indie rock adventure for the whole family.

What do you do when the hero of a musical has no intention of being in a musical? When the very idea of a musical sends him into fits of laughter?

In the clever adaptation, Will pits musical theatre against indie-rock  - combined with slapstick comedy, fantastic songs and choreography in which Dennis is forced to question his whole reason for being the outlier - tearing him away from his closest friends and even putting Walter in great danger of being MORE popular than Dennis is! 

A fantastic fun-filled adventure that will please all Dennis fans, old and new - the official launch date is held over until the covid pandemic has been brought under control, but watch this space for news on this not-to-be-missed theatre experience.
