Theatre Ballads: Horse & Bamboo Theatre

Horse & Bamboo Theatre presents Theatre Ballads, a newly commissioned piece which vividly reimagines traditional song-stories with puppetry and simple illustrations. Creators Kate, Bryony & Esther champion the historic beauty of the long ballad, but, knowing it’s easy for the mind to wander, they conceived this charming theatrical piece to help bring the old stories to life.
Joined by highly respected musician Ewan McLennan, let these compelling storytellers enchant you with musical tales of a great fight, a broken contract and a female smuggler, and experience these old ballads as you’ve never heard or seen them before.

This is a seated show.
