A Little Heart The Puppet Musical ‘A Little Heart goes a long way…’

Written and Directed by Cillian O Donnachadha

Music and Lyrics by John McLarnon

‘ANNA is a ten year old, housebound because of a hole in her heart. She longs to play like all the other kids, but her heart won’t let her. One night, Anna awakes to the sound of a distant, strangely familiar song. She follows the sound up into the attic and into a world she never knew existed and an adventure, she will never forget.’
