Monkey Baa SuitcasesMonkey Baa invites families to escape the everyday these school holidays and embark on an unforgettable adventure with The Secret Life of Suitcases, opening in Australia for the first time at the Lend Lease Darling Quarter Theatre, from 28 September 2015.

Larry works in an office and he likes it very much. He likes sorting and tidying and generally putting things in order. But one day, a suitcase suddenly appears at his door. A suitcase with a tiny label. A tiny label with Larry’s name on it. And this suitcase has a mission…

Join Larry as his world gets turned upside down by a fantastical flying suitcase taking him further than he ever thought possible. Follow Larry’s journey as he discovers the thrill of adventure and the joy of coming home again.

Created by playwright Lewis Hetherington and puppeteer Ailie Cohen, The Secret Life of Suitcases is a funny and enchanting collaboration with the Unicorn Theatre – the UK’s leading theatre for young audiences.
