Saskia Janse, playwright

Originally produced in SCT’s 2002-03 season

Nicky finds a photograph and discovers that he has a brother, Noel. But Noel is somewhere else. Nicky decides to visit Noel, and travels to the land of ‘somewhere else’, a beautiful land filled with mountains, rivers, spacious skies and raucous angels.

“Nicky travels the death issue with deep tenderness and cloud-spun beauty. The little puppet gamely works through his loss, longing and curiosity with an effervescent sprit.” Seattle Post-Intelligencer

“Death may seem an unlikely subject for children’s theater, especially when the subject is the death of a sibling, and more particularly, a twin. But a willingness to confront that profound loss is what makes Nicky Somewhere Else special. And the ability to go about that daunting task with humor, creativity, immense charm and touching sensitivity is what makes it so worthwhile [to see it].” New York Times
