Fables For a Boy at the Lost Theatre
New production company Sandvaer has announced it will present a 'different kind of musical', Fables For a Boy at the Lost Theatre in Wandsworth, south London, from 28 March to 24 April 2016, with an official opening on 30 March 2016.
Written by Adrian Sandvaer, Ranghild Kristoffersen and Gabriel Owen, this new musical promised shadow puppetry, marionettes, projection, eight actors, an orchestra, and a custom designed rod puppet.
"A selfish, self-loathing mother and an ungrateful father. A doctor with a dark heart, a teacher who knows it all yet gives nothing. A loving grandmother with a talent for spinning a web of beautiful, dangerous stories. And finally, one lonely, troubled boy trapped within this poisonous concoction. Can this voiceless boy escape from the winds of despair that push him even closer to the edge? Can hope carry him to a place where nightmares can’t find him?"
The production will be directed by Ryan Duncan with design by Sorcha Corcoran, and is produced by Adrian Sandvaer. Full casting details are yet to be announced.
Tickets for the production are now on sale.
