    Joe Maloney can’t be the man his mum wants him to be; he can’t be like the boys in Cody’s gang; he can’t learn to how kill. But on his own, he can slip into another skin, fly with the larks, hear the tiger’s footsteps in his dreams. He can be anything within his secret heart.

    When Joe meets Corinna and her strange circus world, everything changes. Under the canvas of the big top, Joe finally begins to feel at home. But when protest and violence from the townsfolk of Helmouth force the circus to close, can Joe return the spirit of the tiger to where it truly belongs?

    Secret Heart, based on the novel by Carnegie Award Winning author, David Almond, combines puppetry, music and movement to bring to life the delicate tale of Joe’s discovery of the tiger within him.
