Chloe and the Colour Catcher - Lyric Hammersmith and on tour

Preview by Lizzie Guilfoyle

AD Infinitum and Bristol Old Vic’s Chloe and the Colour Catcher will tour the UK from February 15 to April 21, visiting the Lyric Hammersmith over Easter 2020 (April 7 to April 11).

Chloe lives in a world with only one colour, a world that is completely grey. But at night, when she’s wrapped up tight, her dreams are colourful and bright.

Transforming stages around the UK into a vibrant world of colour and rhyme, audiences can join Chloe on her courageous journey to unleash all seven shades of the rainbow in what is described as an extraordinary and wholly original tale of bravery, self-expression and fighting for what your heart knows to be true.

Ad Infinitum’s first full length show for children, Chloe and the Colour Catcher is a call to arms for young activists and future world-changers to speak out against what’s wrong and to celebrate their differences.

Chloe and the Colour Catcher is written and directed by Nir Paldi who said: “We are all born into an environment that is not of our choosing. An environment that then becomes all we know to be true. Some of us fit perfectly into the reality we were born into. Others question the world around them and challenge it with curiosity. Chloe is one of those who questions. She wants to understand how she can make the world around her fairer. I hope you find young Chloe inspiring in her curiosity and fighting spirit, as she embarks on a battle for endless diversity, freedom, originality and imagination.”

The cast includes Charlotte Dubery, Peter Edwards, Brian Hargreaves and Hanora Kamen. Composer and musical director is Brian Hargreaves and the production is designed by Katie Sykes.
