Handa's Surprise

Travel to Kenya and follow in Handa’s footsteps as she journeys to see her best friend Akeyo, in the next village.

Handa is taking 7 delicious fruits as a surprise – but 7 different animals have 7 very different ideas… could you resist the sweet-smelling guava? How about a ripe red mango or a tangy purple passion fruit?


A blend of physical performance, puppetry, live music and song combine to create an intimate, magical production with audience participation. Come and share in the magical tangerine surprise!
