An uplifting short film featuring BSL, storytelling and song.

Mr Popple is a kind, elderly man who lives alone with just his pet tortoise, Tommy, for company. When his neighbours suddenly find themselves housebound, he notices their struggles and sets out to share some joy. His acts of kindness transform strangers into friends (and pop stars!) and a community is born.

“I cannot recommend this enough as a joyful piece of family theatre. Really quite profoundly moving” Audience member, Twitter
