A dustbin, a homeless lady and an extra-ordinary tale of courage

In a makeshift cardboard home-made home

Lives a kind old lady with a heart of gold.

Rescuing creatures great and small,

Dustbin Doris will amaze us all.

It’s bin collection day and our two heroic waste collectors Max and Ola are racing to make up lost time. But what’s this? A dustbin that refuses to release its contents! What could be attached? It’s Doris, the dotty old lady who lives in the park. A struggle ensues as she clings onto her possessions.  But every bin has a silver liner. So, when the pair of refuse loaders realise that ‘one man’s trash is another woman’s treasure’, an amazing trove of wonderous tales recycle their way out of the rubbish.  

Rhubarb Theatre, known for their imaginative styles of storytelling, perform their latest bin-full of fantasy for all the family. Prepare for joy and tenderness, laughter and tears, with surprises around every corner. Dustbin Doris is waste-deep in theatrical play, puppetry, mask, dance, song and lots of laughter.

Welcome to the IW Story Festival.

Friday 25th and Saturday 26th February 2022

It’s a special place for children and families to have fun together; where we can all CREATE, INSPIRE and IMAGINE.

 Stories are all around us; not just in books and poems and plays and songs, but also in the news and history and the places we live. Over two days, the IW Story Festival lets you get lost in stories of all kinds…

Our aim is to:

Let children and their families CREATE; whether through stories and poems, junk modelling or other crafts; to have fun together and discover new talents

Let authors, poets, actors, illustrators, spoken word artists and others INSPIRE you to create your own stories; to discover new worlds and new ideas

Let us all IMAGINE the amazing things we can do and the amazing things we can be.

What stories will you bring with you?
