Yellow is the Colour of Sunshine

Yoshi and Hani are as different as chalk is to cheese. One big, one small; one noisy, one quiet. Side by side they play by the blue sea, run through the green fields and dance in the yellow sunshine. But one day the sky turns grey and everything starts to change. Yellow is the Colour of Sunshine is a new play told in words, sign, colours, music and movement about feelings, emotions, empathy and how we communicate. Award-winning writer Brendan Murray collaborates with Tutti Frutti to bring you a show full of beautiful multi-coloured delights, for children to think about, be inspired by and enjoy.
