Imagine being told to leave you home...
Imagine American soldiers occupying your house and land...
Imagine being 12 and angry, with only a cat to tell your secrets to...
Well it all happened (most of it anyway) in Slapton Sands, Devon, in 1944.

Based on Michael Morpurgo's novel, 946: The Amazing Story of Adolphus Tips explodes everything we thought we knew about the D-Day landings.

With signature Kneehigh sorcery, 946: The Amazing Story of Adolphus Tips uses music, puppetry and foolishness to tell this tale of war, prejudice and love. Tender, political and surprisingly romantic, this story speaks to us all and will finally reveal the secrets the US and British governments tried to keep quiet.

Directed by Emma Rice, with a Kneehigh cast and composer, the show enjoyed a sell-out run at the award-winning Asylum in Cornwall. This promises to be an event to remember and is perfect for adults and adventurous children.
