Yellow is the Colour of Sunshine

Yellow is the Colour of Sunshine

Yellow is the Colour of Sunshine is a charming and playful story about two friends who learn to communicate their feelings. 

Yellow is the Colour of Sunshine begins as Hani is playing alone, with only a solitary magpie for company - until she makes a wish and Yoshi appears. The little boy communicates through sign language and Hani speaks; one big, one small, one loud, one quiet - they find that they are as different as chalk is to cheese. But as they discover one another, bonding over biscuits and rhyme, the pair become friends.  

Side-by-side, the shy girl and the happy boy play together; splashing in the blue sea, running through the green fields and dancing, all underneath a vibrant yellow sky. But when Hani wants to play with Yoshi’s kite, everything changes. 

As the kite blows away, the sky turns stormy and grey. Yoshi and Hani have to work out what are these new feelings that they are experiencing? Will the yellow sunshine ever come out again? 

With the help of some dancing magpies, the playmates learn to communicate what’s in their hearts, finding a way to become friends once more.


Ages 3+

Duration: 1 hour


This is a BSL (British Sign Language) integrated show, for both deaf and hearing audiences to enjoy. There are three actors in the piece who tell the story of two friends: Yoshi (who communicates through BSL), Hani (who communicates though spoken word), and Kite/Magpie (who communicates through dance).
