Handa's Hen

Duration 35 minutes
Suitable for 2-6 years

Following their sell-out tour of Handa's Surprise, Handa and Akeyo are back for another exciting adventure in their Kenyan home. This time they're searching for Grandma's black hen, Mondi. During their search they find two fluttery butterflies around the hen house, three stripy mice under the grain store, four little lizards behind the pots...but where is Mondi? 

Based on the book by Eileen Browne, this beautiful story interweaves puppetry, music and dance in another winning production.

This warm, inclusive show has an increasingly energising effect on the young audience...a sweet safari...and you learn how to count to ten in Swahili
