Sally Saber wanted to be a tiger; sharp-toothed, clever, and unafraid. But there was never anything to be scared of. Her mother and father made sure Sally Saber was always safe.


Until one night Sally found she was the only one awake in her dark house. Her parents would not stir. No-one would read her a story until she drifted back to dreams. All the familiar shapes and sounds she knew suddenly turned strange. Everything was changing. Even sleeping mum and dad were sprouting hair and hooves - twisting –into horses!


This would be no ordinary night.

Developed with Terrapin Puppet Theatre in Hobart, Sleeping Horses Lie enjoyed an extensive tour of Tasmania in 2012, and Victoria and Hong Kong in 2014.
