When an old washerwoman goes down to the riverbank to scrub clothes, she sees a giant peach bobbing towards her. When she takes the peach home and cuts it open, out pops a baby boy with superhuman powers. So starts the story of Momotaro, the Peach Boy, and his struggle to find his place in a world that no longer believes in heroes. Accompanied by Dog, Pheasant and Monkey, he must go on a quest to save the village from dastardly demons and marvellous monsters.
Inspired by the East, Peach Boy: The Adventures Of Momotaro fuses puppetry and live performance in a production aimed at families with children aged six and over.
