Joe and Ella are a great team – they make each other laugh, help each other out and tackle all the chores their busy lives throw at them. But one morning things begin to change when Joe gets all tangled up and Ella has to start doing things alone. What will Ella do now? Will she be able to continue as before, or will it all get to much? If only she had a little help…

Based on the experiences of young carers, this piece explored what it means to look after someone else when you are young.  In a uniquely designed immersive space, the young audience helped the performers look after each other, stepping into the shoes of young carers.

Need a Little Help was a deeply moving and joyfully uplifting piece of interactive and physical theatre in co-production with Tangled Feet.
