Description

'Fergus himself was a little stunned and stared with eyes like dinner plates then said: 'My name is Fergus'. She replied: 'And mine is Kate'. In that very second, each of them had found a friend whose souls would remain entangled from now until the end.' An interactive adventure that uses storytelling, music and animation to encourage children to celebrate their differences. 'The animation and music really make the story come alive, perfect for my hyper four-year-old, the right amount of story to action' (Audience member).
