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. Larry’s world gets turned upside down as this fantastical flying suitcase takes him further than he ever thought possible, to discover the thrill of adventure and the joy of coming home again. A playful, huge hearted piece for small people with giant imaginations, The Secret Life of Suitcases celebrates a handmade aesthetic in a digital world. Both funny and profound, this charming play resonates with all ages and is the first ever co-production between Ailie Cohen Puppet Maker, one of Scotland’s leading puppetry companies, and Unicorn Theatre, the UK’s leading theatre for young audiences.
