The Girl &

The Giraffe

One day whilst Girl is playing in her garden, she spots something peculiar on the other side of the fence. Climbing up as high as she can to get a better view, she is surprised when she comes face to face with…Giraffe!


As their friendship grows, Girl discovers that Giraffe isn’t very well. She tries everything she can to make him feel a bit better; putting on bandages, making a cup of tea, and even baking a truly magnificent cake, but she doesn’t get it quite right. Girl soon realises that Giraffe doesn’t need a plaster for a graze on his arm or a scratch on his knee. Sometimes we need a different kind of plaster for the things you can’t always see.


Charming puppetry, an enchanting soundscape and beautiful storytelling combine in this sensitive show about love and friendship, dealing with depression in an inexplicit and sensitive way.
