Plan your visit

A bear has lost his hat. What if he never sees it again? WAIT! He has seen his hat.

A fish has stolen a hat. And he’ll probably get away with it. Probably.

Two turtles have found a hat. The hat looks good on both of them. But there are two turtles. And there is only one hat.

Following their hit digital series, lockdown sensations Ian Nicholson and Sam Wilde are back with more of their trademark cardboard design. Jon Klassen’s beloved books, I Want My Hat Back, This is Not My Hat and We Found A Hat, will have a brand new life of their own LIVE on the Little Angel Theatre stage. All your favourites including Bear, Little Fish and the Turtles will be making an appearance in this one-of-a-kind trilogy.

“pure joy… a triumphant tabletop trilogy” — The  Guardian

Make your very own little fish puppet and bring it to the show!

Play Video

Samuel Wilde, designer and maker of the show, shows you how to make your very own Little Fish puppet! All you need is some cardboard, scissors, pens, tape, glue and some sticks (skewers or chopsticks work well).

Once complete, bring it along to the show with you as there will be an opportunity for you to take part in the show.

Age guidance

The I Want My Hat Back Trilogy is aimed at ages 3 – 6. The play contains three simple, funny and gently paced stories where animal characters act on feelings about ownership, wanting things and fairness that children of this age can relate to. In the first two stories it is implied that small animals have been eaten by bigger animals (off stage). The final story shows a friendship. Under-3s may get a little restless as the show runs for 45 minutes without ‘joining in’ parts.
