Award-winning recorder quartet Palisander joins theatre company Rust and Stardust, in an exciting new family show of magic, history and science.

The tale is told through beautiful puppetry and music, performed on recorders up to 6ft tall. Set in 1595, Dr Dee’s Daughter and the Philosopher’s Stone follows young Katherine Dee as she starts her search for the Philosopher’s Stone – the Elixir of Life, a quest her father has abandoned. She experiments, and manages to summon an assistant in the playful spirit, Madimi. But using Dee’s magic crystal has opened a pathway and not all those who use it are as friendly as Madimi…
