946: The Amazing Story of Adolphus Tips

A Kneehigh Theatre Company production. Presented in association with Birmingham Repertory Theatre and Berkeley Repertory Theatre.

SYNOPSIS: A tender new coming-of-age tale that uncovers the secrets behind World War II’s D-Day landings. In the idyllic seaside village of Slapton, the lives of Lily, her family, and her fiercely independent cat Adolphus Tips are barely touched by war…until American soldiers occupy their house and land. With swingin’ live music, enchanting puppetry, and signature stage sorcery, Emma Rice conjures a story of love, war, and prejudice that crosses borders both geographical and generational.
