Play, from 27 Oct 2016




Hannah loves gorillas. In fact she's a bit obsessed by them. But this is probably a good thing, because her dad is a very busy man and he is always working. Sometimes Hannah wishes her dad was more like a gorilla, because dad gorillas play with their offspring. With her birthday coming, Hannah longs for a very special present: her own real gorilla to play with. She's disappointed when her dad gets her a toy version, but then something magical happens - her toy gorilla comes to life, and together they embark on a thrilling, moonlit adventure.Meet the world's friendliest gorilla this autumn as we present the sell-out Polka Theatre production of the award-winning picture book by former Children's Laureate Anthony Browne, brought to you by the team who produced Charlie and Lola's Best Bestest Play.
