The Sleep That Ceased to Settle

It was Joanie’s Mum who sang the bedtime songs. Now she's gone and Joanie can't sleep. Encouraged by her dad Malley, Joanie begins to tell a story of a village where sleep has ceased to settle. Can a young girl guide her community to the safety of Mt Torgberg? Can songs return and Joanie and Malley finally find sleep?

This new heart-warming play by internationally renowned playwright Finegan Kruckemeyer is full of heart, fun and great adventure, as a father and daughter try to come to terms with loss, grief and a lack of sleep.
