SUMMARY

This autumn, whilst our redevelopment continues, we'll be working in partnership with the beautiful St George's to bring you Kneehigh's new production The Wild Bride. In a stunning elemental world of petals, clay, fire and orchards, here is a lyrical story with a brutal edge and a beating heart. It's the story of what happens when your father accidentally sells you to the devil.

Betrayed by her silly father, our heroine walks into the wilderness, rejecting not only the devil, but also her home and trusting heart as well. In the wilds she meets a Prince and becomes pregnant, but when he is called to war, her heart breaks as she is forced to step out on her own again. Alone she brings up her child, and - wonder of wonders - her broken heart grows back. Perhaps this is happily ever after, perhaps that is even more joy to come...

This epic and poetic wonder tale is classic Kneehigh stuff. Charting a life from girlhood to womanhood, you can expect instinctive storytelling, devilish humour and a heady mix of live and found music.

Admission: £7 – £26
