Emil and the Detectives

Emil and the Detectives

by Carl Miller


'Password Emil!' If Mrs Tischbein had known the amazing adventures her son Emil would have in Berlin, she'd never have let him go. Emil is excited to be taking the train on his own for the first time. He doesn't like the look of his fellow passenger, the man in the bowler hat. Emil will just have to keep his wits about him and his money in his pocket. But Emil falls asleep and when he wakes up the man in the bowler hat is gone and so is the money! Emil is determined to get it back. He teams up with a gang of young detectives and so begins a hair raising chase across Berlin to catch the dirty rotten thief.

Play version of Erich Kastner's classic children's book. Adapted for the stage by Carl Miller.
