The Cinema of the Imagination: Fairytales for Grown ups

Thu 21 June 2018 // 19:30

Tickets: £9.50 advance / £12 on the door

There is a place where that which is broken can be mended;
thoughts can be heard;
old bones speak;
and everyone wants revenge...

In the fairytale forest Tatterhood the wild twin, is coming this way - she'd riding a goat and she's armed with a spoon. While, in Trickster's wonderland a man mimics a waterfall and almost gets away with it, a woman hides her doll-sized sister in her plaited her, and we all journey to the edge of the earth...

Martin Shaw & Nell Phoenix serve up a double-bill of fairytales for grown-ups. Expect sheer magic, gleeful deceit, and anarchic tomfoolery.
