About the Show Less...

Following last year's sell-out hit, join Greenwich Theatre for an all new site-specific family show at Trinity Buoy Wharf. Read More >

Greenwich Theatre return to the atmospheric Electrician’s Basement at Trinity Buoy Wharf, home to last year’s sell-out family hit Balthazar’s Bazaar Of The Bizarre, for an all new site-specific family show.

When an unfortunate twist of fate separates Jennifer from her guardian Uncle, she finds herself on board a giant ship destined for Australia. As her unexpected nautical adventure unfolds, her strange surroundings bring to life Jennifer’s ingenious imagination, conjuring up a variety of weird and wonderful companions to help her on her way.

Storytelling, puppetry, and live music combine to form this fantastical interpretation of factual events, marking the exciting debut of new theatre company Powderkeg.

Suitable for ages 8+

– This is a promenade performance and involves walking around the basement space. Therefore, it is not suitable for push chairs.

Travel to and from the venue:
BOAT: Early bird bookers with free boat travel depart from Queen Elizabeth Pier at the O2 half an hour before the show. Please arrive in good time, as there is only one boat journey in either direction. Boats leave at 10.30am (for the 11am performance), 1.30pm (for the 2pm performance) and 4.30pm (for the 5pm performance). Return boat journeys leave the venue at 12.15pm, 3.15pm and 6.15pm.
DLR:To East India, followed by a 10 minute walk. Please do not walk over the footbridge at the station, instead use the stairs to the south exit. Outside of the station follow the blue signs marked either Trinity Buoy Wharf or the Bird Sanctuary.
UNDERGROUND: To Canning Town. From there it is a 15 minute walk. Exit from the north end (closest to the ticket office). Go to the large roundabout and turn left leading you over the River Lea bridge. Turn left at the foot of the bridge and follow the Lea to the roundabout with the Esso Station on the right. Keep following the Lea round to the left by PURA Foods and the path emerges onto Orchard Place. Bear right and continue on until you reach Trinity Buoy Wharf at the end.
CAR: Follow signs to Leamouth on the A13 or from Aspen Way. At the Leamouth roundabout (Esso Petrol Station), take the Lower Lea Crossing exit. Almost immediately, go left after the bridge.
