Half Moon Presents a Floods of Ink production

One day whilst Girl is playing in her garden, she spots something peculiar on the other side of the fence. Climbing up as high as she can to get a better view, she is surprised when she comes face to face with... Giraffe!

As their friendship grows, Girl discovers that Giraffe isn't very well. She tries everything she can to make him feel a bit better; putting on bandages, making a cup of tea, and even baking a truly magnificent cake, but she doesn't get it quite right. Girl soon realises that Giraffe doesn't need a plaster for a graze on his arm or a scratch on his knee. Giraffe is sad. Sometimes we need a different kind of plaster for the things you can't always see.

Charming puppetry, an enchanting soundscape and beautiful storytelling combine in this sensitive show about wellbeing and friendship, told from a child's perspective.

Age guidance: 3 - 6 years



'A lovely show with wonderful puppetry. There are giggles, compassion, and a catchy ditty about mixing and baking a cake, along with a sweet example of the value of writing and reading in friendships. My little one loved it and we both loved the magical space that had been created... Perfect theatre for little ones' Super Weston Mum

'Charming and humorous, the Girl and the Giraffe proves that what we need when helping one another is exactly what our long-necked friend already has: a big heart' Exeunt Magazine

'I just wanted to say how brilliant The Girl and the Giraffe was today. I struggle to explain to my kids why mummy is down and cries sometimes and this was just spot on. I really identified with some of the emotions that the giraffe felt, especially when he starts to feel better and comes out to play but is still a bit unsure. I’ve got something to use to explain bad days to my son now; I can say that I feel sad like giraffe. I think a lot of adults would have learnt from the play as well. Thank you for putting it on' Audience Member, Tobacco Factory Theatre
