About Stories in the Dust


The sun beats down on two travellers, journeying across a mysterious land in a contraption they've built themselves. They sing, play games, and tell stories inspired by a collection of precious things they've gathered from a time gone by.  

With live music and puppetry, Stories in the Dust is a funny, heartfelt and hopeful eco-fable that takes you to another world. A world where an ancient book guides your way, a drop of rain changes everything and a mighty lion holds its secrets in an old clay pot. 

Will our intrepid explorers make it? They're full of ideas and full of hope but dangerously low on baked beans.

Stories in the Dust was originally created with support from MAST Mayflower Studios and shared at their Emergency Festival. It was developed thanks to public funding from National Lottery through Arts Council England in partnership with Pound Arts and Wiltshire Creative.

The storyline and accompanying education pack were developed with support from Ian Williams, Professor of Applied Environmental Science at Southampton University.
