‘A delightful production’
British Theatre Guide

A joyful, kaleidoscopic new show for 5 to 12 year-olds about change, why change happens and how to deal with it.

The world has ever so slightly shifted. Things are… different, skewed, off kilter and no one else has noticed. Join us for this fast-moving and musical adventure about the chaos of the last few years – allowing young people to take stock and share hopes for the future.

Created by award-winning theatre company Rhum + Clay, made in consultation with a child psychologist and children across London.

Project History

Award-winning theatre companies Rhum and Clay and New Diorama have partnered to develop a new theatre show for schools, supported with teacher resources, that acknowledges the weirdness and discombobulation of this last year and makes all that change a little less scary and a bit more hopeful.

Everything Has Changed toured local school and community venues across London over summer 2021, reaching 2,100+ people, after which it transferred to Pleasance Two at Edinburgh Fringe 2022, where it was listed as one of the Top 10 Children’s Shows by TimeOut, and secured numerous strong reviews.
