A family audio drama commissioned by Baboró International Arts Festival for Children

Into the World Within

An audio drama for all the family

Dare you venture into the Underworld...

Alex and Nicky are bored, stuck indoors all day, but at least Uncle Petey is coming to visit! His stories have always brought magic into their lives, even if Nicky thinks stories are “immature” these days. But when Uncle Petey arrives, something's not quite right. Alex knows what’s made him so quiet and withdrawn...he’s a changeling, and it’s up to Alex and Nicky to bring the real Uncle Petey home.

Join Alex and a reluctant Nicky as they journey into the underworld through a pillow fort in their bedroom. The quest to save Uncle Petey won’t be easy, and in the Underworld nothing is as it seems…

Commissioned by Baboró International Arts Festival for Children, Moonfish Theatre have devised an audio journey for the whole family using live foley to create a magical, musical world of enchanting adventures.
