"It was magical, they were mesmerized – it was the best school tour we were ever on."

"They loved it, one child (hard of hearing) doesn’t communicate very much and he communicated about it at home, this is very unusual for him, he only does this with things that he has really enjoyed."

Larry works in an office and he likes it very much. He likes sorting and tidying and generally putting things in order. Everything in its place, a place for everything. But one day, a suitcase suddenly appears at his door. A suitcase with a tiny label. A tiny label with Larry’s name on it. And this suitcase has a mission …
Join Larry in ‘The Secret Life of Suitcases’ as his world gets turned upside down by a fantastical flying suitcase taking him further than he ever thought possible. Follow Larry’s journey as he discovers the thrill of adventure and the joy of coming home again. This funny and enchanting puppet show was originally co-produced by the Unicorn Theatre, London.

Spréacha is Draíocht's international programme for children and is presented by Draíocht in partnership with Fingal County Council.
