Synopsis
 
Tutu and the Sky Goddess is a show about the ancient Egyptians for 5 - 11 year olds or a family audience

With Nut the Sky Goddess as their guide, Tutu and her cat, Tam-iu, set off on their journey from the lush and fertile valley of the Nile, via the land of dreams, to the Underworld. There the jackal-headed god Anubis weighs Tutu's heart and deeds against the Feather of Truth.

Will she escape Amut the Devourer of Souls? And will her heart be light enough to enter the Afterlife?

The story explores the myths of ancient Egypt with shadow and rod puppets accompanied by original music.

Written by Suffolk novelist Julia Blackburn
Performed as 'Theatre in Residence' at the British Museum.
