Conor: at the end of the Universe


Conor is on a mission.

A mission to get to the outer edge of the Universe before he runs out of time.

But how long until the end of the Universe? How much space? How much time?

Conor: at the end of the Universe is a sensory journey through space at time-bending speeds for 4 – 6 year olds. This engaging production uses puppets, design, animation and music as Conor and his Grandad bring you to places that you’ve never seen before
