Emma Darlow plays teacher Madame Bounine in the new Michael Morpugo hit called 946: The Amazing Adventures of Adolphus Tips.

The plot revolves around the true story of a botched rehearsal for the D-day landings that ended in a catastrophe, concealed for years. It’s a family show that mixes carnival and tragedy in a series of scenes, both merry and sad.

Created by Kneehigh, it uses music and puppetry to tell the tale.

The show launched at The Globe in London and is about to embark on a UK tour, starting at the Birmingham Rep on 15 October.

The Independent’s four star review said “the sheer verve of the ensemble should delight punters of all ages”. While The Times commented:  “It’s perfectly pitched for a family show. My merry band of junior critics were enthralled while I found myself blinking back tears.”

Watch the trailer for the show.
