Mr Nancy is an action adventure about bravery and friendship. Three unlikely strangers must overcome their differences when they unite to outwit the terrible tiger-monster. Inspired by West African ‘Anansi’ folktales, and stories of the Norse god, Loki, Mr Nancy is a vibrant mix of myth, music and song. A dynamic and accessible introduction to live theatre for young audiences from Auckland’s premier theatre company.
