Sadako and the thousand paper cranes

10 years after surviving the Hiroshima bomb, Sadako was diagnosed with leukaemia. While in hospital she heard a legend that if you folded 1000 paper cranes you would be granted a wish. Her wish was to live. She folded 644 cranes before she passed away and her friends completed them in memory of her.

“A wonderful piece of theatre that is very moving. I love the beauty found in the sadness.. An awesome performance”. Katie Kermond
