Tick Tock Sleep

Sanne Zweije

A tickling toddler performance about Doll who cannot sleep and drives Mum tockling mad!

Inspired by ‘Can’t You Sleep, Little Bear?’ by Martin Wadell.

Tick … tock … tick … tock …
Doll cannot sleep.

Tick … tock … tick … tock …
Another light needs to be turned on.

Tick … tock … tick … tock …

Even with all the lights on, Doll cannot sleep.
She is afraid of the dark.
Mummy is tired.
She would like to read a book.
She’s gone all tickely tockely that Doll doesn’t sleep.
Will all the stars of night be enough light for Doll?

In Tick Tock Sleep, one actress turns a chest of drawers into a house full of surprising rooms and floors. Using a little doll, beautiful images and hilarious sounds, she plays the story of Doll who is afraid of the dark and Mummy who needs time for herself. A funny, sweet and often recognisable performance for the teeny young and tiny old.

Tick Tock Sleep played at Oerol, the parade, the Silk Road Festival in Xi’an (China) and other places.

Theaterkrant “fascinating from start to finish.”
