Another Winter’s Tale

One Night OnlyFriday 11 November 2022 (Doors open 6:30 pm with curtain up @ 7.30pm)

Professional theatre with a family audience in mind…

“It is a winter’s night. The storm outside gets ever louder. Two strangers are trapped, not able to move on, but unable to stay.

Outside, a presence moves closer. Inside, they share the tales of distant times and faraway lands. Waiting…

Who are they, what’s their story? Friends, innocents, showmen, or something a little more intriguing?

Only time will tell…”

The award-winning company, Dogwood Productions, is coming to Long Bennington Village Hall this Autumn.

The theatre show has family audiences firmly in mind, with humour, songs and an enthralling story.  It includes shadow puppets, hand puppets and a Kamishibai, a traditional Japanese street theatre. The show draws upon tales of deepest winter from the frozen North, across Europe and much nearer to home.

Produced especially for the winter months, the show is rich in original live music from award-winning composer, Alastair Collingwood

The company has specialised in taking new writing, rich in live music and with outstanding puppetry, to community venues since 2016. Some of its work has subsequently made its way before larger audiences with a sold-out performance at the RSC and being transmitted on both BBC Radio 4 and the World Service.

Tickets available from Sharricks Fish Shop and Long Bennington Village Hall.  Further details will be announced on the Village Hall website and via Facebook.

Prices: £12 adults and £7 children under 18

Recommended for children aged 8+
