Anansi the Spider

The wonderful people at the Unicorn Theatre are releasing a number of Anansi theatre productions from Saturday 30th May. We will be celebrating the Anansi stories on this page and sharing ways you can get involved in some activities all about this popular story character.

Anansi the Spider Re-Spun, episode 1: Brother Anansi and Brother Snake

This is the first in a trio of Anansi the Spider Re-spun episodes aimed at children aged 3 - 8 and streamed for free in partnership with The Guardian.

Each week the Unicorn Theatre provide creative ideas for things you can do at home after watching the stories online; there are drama games, story-acting, art, and animation activities, as well as suggested discussion points and research you could do to find out more about where the stories come from.


There are things children, siblings and adults can do together that are fun, accessible and bring the stories alive in your home.
