The musical will be written by Matt Harvey and Thomas Hewitt Jones, the team behind Rumpelstiltskin, the recent hit Christmas show at The Egg Theatre, Bath.  It will be suitable to be performed by schools, amateur dramatic groups, Transition groups – in fact any group to that wants to engage their wider community in the challenging questions facing people across the world – in a friendly, uplifting and inspiring way.  The storyline is likely to include some of the principles shared by the Transition Movement and tell a very human story of change.  The Transition movement has be a particular inspiration to the writers and those backing the production.
