Never underestimate the determination of a child! Young Emil catches a train to visit family in the big city. Something valuable is stolen. But the thief soon discovers Emil was not such an easy target. A group of quick-thinking and resourceful children rallies around. Can a bunch of kids work together to uncover and outsmart the true criminal? In Slingsby’s signature intimate theatrical style, "Emil and The Detectives" is told by two skilled actors immersed in smoke and mirrors, miniature worlds and a cinematic score. Running time: 60 minutes 

“My expectations were not only met but exceeded by this beautiful show. I was left feeling that not only had I experienced something truly special, but that the world is a better place for having a company like Slingsby in it.” – Aspire Magazine
