A THING MISLAID ......a new Foo show full of footsteps, feathers and hope.

'Somewhere, on a nowhere road, just past adrift and before you reach astray, you’ll find two lost souls. Running. Running with a thing. A thing mislaid. A thing without a flock, looking for a place to belong.'

Haunting...Mesmerising...Thought provoking
— THE STAGE (4 Stars)
Magical and moving.....imaginative... inspired...indeed brilliant
— REVIEWS HUB (4.5 Stars)
Extraordinary and endearing....has qualities on chaplin
— Derby Telegraph

Maison Foo blend their trademark style of visual storytelling, clowning and humour, with new experiments in miniature puppetry and live camera.

Travelling through cinematic worlds and surreal realities, A THING MISLAID explores themes of migration and journey, asking the question ‘If home is no longer home, then where do we belong’?

A heartfelt tale full of footsteps, hope and an unlikely friendship between two lonely travellers and a mysterious bird.
