Enjoy a unique children’s play based on the books by Duncan Ball. The Arts Centre Gold Coast and Monkey Baa Theatre Company proudly present, Emily Eyefinger.
Emily Eyefinger is the story of adventurous heroine, Emily, who was born with an extraordinary gift, an eye on the end of her finger. But Emily has a dilemma. 'Am I Emily because of my eyefinger or am I Emily because of me?'
Emily struggles with being different, and confiding in her best friend Malcolm, begins to contemplate life without her eyefinger, even considering surgical removal!
Meanwhile, Emily embarks on her biggest adventure yet. With her Great Aunt Olympia, Emily heads into a deepest darkest jungle where she foils a kidnapping attempt by the evil Arthur Crim and solves the mystery of the Ancient Caves of Tutenkamouse.
With the help of those around her, Emily eventually finds pride in her 'bit of difference' and acknowledges that sometimes it's better to leave things just as they are.
Emily Eyefinger is a light-hearted joyous work with resonating themes of identity, respect and friendship.
