Ruby’s Wish

Digital Season | Recorded in The Studio in 2018

This performance is no longer available to stream. See what’s coming up on From Our House to Yours.

What do you do when you’re stuck in your room all day and can’t go anywhere? Why not be like Ruby and go absolutely everywhere, including the night sky, the deepest ocean or your very own rock concert? Imagination can be your super power.

Ruby is seven and three quarters. She is everything a little girl should be: brazen, hopeful and bright-eyed. But unlike other little girls, Ruby is sick and spends most of her time in hospital.

Through an unlikely friendship with a beatboxing clown doctor, Ruby’s hospital room is transformed into a wonderland, where anything can happen and wishes really do come true!

Ruby’s Wish combines beautiful puppets, sensational clowning and original music into a heartwarming, visual spectacular that will enchant children and parents alike.
