Tuesday 5 - Saturday 23 May (except Sundays) (Previews: Tuesday 5 - Thursday 7 May)
A brand new creation from WildWorks, co-produced by Norfolk & Norwich Festival
Acclaimed theatre makers WildWorks take you on an immersive journey deep into the dark woods, to a world of shape-shifting animals and humans.
This extraordinary grown-up fairytale of love and betrayal opens against the magnificent backdrop of Felbrigg Hall – home in our story to a tyrannical mistress and her school of maids. From here we follow an extraordinary journey through the trees to a place of magical transformation; where crows talk and wolves sing, and where one disobedient serving maid discovers her inner beast.
"one of the outstanding theatrical events not only of this year, but of the decade" Susannah Clapp, The Observer on WildWorks' The Passion
POST SHOW TALK with members of the cast and creative team on Wednesday 13 and 20 May - free to ticket holders.
Wednesday 13 May - Devising and developing work for the landscape with Artistic Director Bill Mitchell, Writer Dave McKean and Production Designer Myriddin Wannell
This original landscape theatre commision will be the theatrical experience of the Festival.
WildWorks create site-specific theatre that responds to landscapes and the stories within them; their most recent piece at The Lost Gardens of Heligan was part of the national 14-18 NOW programme and their critically-acclaimed The Passion with Michael Sheen drew an audience of over 25,000 to the streets of Port Talbot.
Food & Drink
Pulled pork filled rolls with coleslaw and vegetarian burgers will be available from 6.45pm on the day of each performance, along with a selection of alcoholic and soft drinks.
