Monday’s Child tells a simple poetic story of the unique bond between a grandmother and a child.

Grandma can’t remember, but does remember to visit every week and play until bedtime. Together, they love to sing and dress up and are often oblivious of the challenges that the real world throws at them.

At just five years old, the child delights in discovering her world. She revels in the days with her eccentric Grandma and loves learning new things – how to count, the different colours and the simplicities of abc and 123.

With live music and dance, this imaginative dream-like yet funny story explores how we learn, grow old and cope with new challenges.
