Ex Libris Macabre by Little Jade Productions
Ex Libris Macabre, devised by Little Jade Productions, at the Theatre Delicatessen at Marylebone Gardens, from 3 to 22 Dec 2012.
Explore the darker side of Christmas in candlelit rooms at Theatre Delicatessen’s Marylebone High Street space, in the vast old offices of the BBC London building. Audiences wander through the atmospheric setting decorated by book sculptures and ripped furniture, listen to an evocative series of dark winter tales and sultry songs. Discover curses, ghosts, fateful cards and bloodied roses, performed to live music by a cast of four actors. Stories include Angela Carter’s The Tiger’s Bride, works of Poe, such as The Raven, traditional Japaese folk myths, and Alfred Noyes’ The Highwayman, all with original interpretation by the company.
Cast includes Jade Alexander, Sonia Allan, Liz McMullen, Akie Kotabe & Tom Judd
Directed by Joseph Thorpe and designed by Kat Heath.
