“Mum says that Percy’s gone. So I’m going to find him.”

Finding Percy Erebus is an enchanting, joyful, and moving story that follows the journey of an 8-year-old child after the death of their best friend, Percy.

Dazzling magic, a stunning original soundtrack, and countless costume changes carry the child from their bedroom to the bottom of the ocean. With curiosity and determination, they explore a magical world and come to terms with the impossible: Finding Percy Erebus.

WHAT the critics SAY

Stockholm proves once again that Playbox Theatre is one of the most radical and brilliant theatre companies around.”



Stockholm (2017)

“This bold new work brilliantly thrust the audience back face-to-face with

the horrific human reality of mass migration… it showcased an inspired young ensemble… this was truly something else.”



Paradise Kill (2016)

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: Playbox is one of the most radical and brilliant theatre companies around.
