    The Letter J presents a charming, living storybook about loss, longing and the treasures of memory and imagination. We meet a young girl who is missing her Grandad – he has gone, even though his favourite job was being her Grandad. Led by found objects and her imagination, she traces his footsteps on a magical adventure through time and space. A mosaic of live music, movement and animation engage the audience in this adorable, moving story.
