“Welcome to The Institute.
We conduct experiments into  the power of imaginations.
We want to know what happens to your mind when you read.
We want to get inside your heads.
It is all perfectly safe.
Trust us.”

Using sound, intimate lighting and projection The Day I Fell Into A Book takes its audience into a lost world of classic tales.  Bit by bit, the fiction becomes reality as the stories seep into the room and our imaginations take over.

A binaural sound and theatre experience exploring the magic of reading and the creative vitality of young minds.

The piece has been created by director, performer and composer Lewis Gibson and is aimed at children in KS2 aged 8 to 11.

“How brilliant it is, in 2017, to see 30 children with their noses in a book, lost in a world of stories. It was fantastic to perform and host workshops in these great schools. Kid’s imaginations never cease to amaze me – it’s incredible to experience what pours out of their brains!” – Lewis Gibson

Reviews for The Chair:

“Lewis Gibson’s fantastical, spooky play for ages seven and up takes you to many more unexpected places… It’s all spine-tingling, shiver-inducing fun.” ★★★★ TIME OUT

“a highly coherent and impressively original production” ★★★★ THE STAGE
