It’s 1998. Otto is twelve but online he’s thirteen and he’s pretty sure he gets away with it. He lives in an old wooden house with his mum, dad, and sister, a chain-smoking Icelandic granny, and an ancient malevolent troll that’s started living in the wall…

From Trick of the Light Theatre (The Bookbinder, The Road That Wasn’t There) comes a lo-fi wi-fi fable combining storytelling, projection, and puppetry. As smartphones become light sources, laptops transform into skyscrapers, and charger cords morph into puppets, it tells a story both mythic and modern in the vein of Stranger Things.

For adults and children 10+.
