Simon Mole is the poet from the pub, that rapper from the beach, the friendly guy with the big eyes who told that story. His infectious enthusiasm for seeing and re-seeing the world around him is an open invitation for you to do the same. Simon's groundbreaking one-man show `Indiana Jones and the extra chair' sold out two London runs, and toured nationally, while hi second, No More Worries, toured nationally in 2015 - reaching over 1200 audience at 9 venues, including Latitude and Wilderness festivals. His first theatre piece for children, Friends For All , was commissioned by the V&A in 2016 and has since toured around England. He has a vast amount of experience across the UK, creating workshops for schools, Pupil Referral Units, museums, prisons, and hospitals. Kites will be his first picture book.
