Description

'He doesn't listen for his name' said a father (who happened to be a king.) A tale of a family who don't know how to communicate. Can the Moonbird and animal friends show them that listening is not always about hearing? Handprint have inspired children for 10 years and now make their Fringe debut with this heart-warming story based on the popular book by Joyce Dunbar and Jane Ray. Supported by artsdepot and Pleasance Litmus, Moonbird was developed by Deaf and hearing creatives for deaf and hearing families.
