Chloe lives in a world with only one colour, a world that is completely grey. But at night, when she’s wrapped up tight, her dreams are colourful and bright.

Unable to contain her imaginative thoughts, Chloe tells of the vast blue seas, lush green jungly-trees and golden yellow sands she’s seen. But, hushed at once by her parents, Chloe is warned to keep such thoughts at bay – for the Grey Queen is out to wash all trace of colour away.

Transforming Bristol Old Vic's brand-new Weston Studio into a vibrant world of colour and song, join Chloe on her courageous journey to unleash all seven shades of the rainbow in this extraordinary and wholly original tale of bravery, selfexpression and fighting for what your heart knows to be true.

As a parent it’s great to see a piece that is enjoyable and entertaining, but perhaps a little more challenging than standard children’s theatre
