1927 Presents

The Animals and Children Took to the Streets

Welcome to the Bayou, a part of the city feared and loathed wherein lies the infamous Bayou Mansions; a sprawling stinking tenement block, where curtain-twitchers and peeping-toms live side by side, and the wolf... is always at the door.

When Agnes Eaves and her daughter arrive late one night, does it signal hope in this hopeless place, or has the real horror only just begun?

Seamlessly synchronising live music, performance and storytelling with stunning films and animation this is the wickedly twisted international hit tale from the multiple award-winning company behind Golem, Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea and The Magic Flute.

Like a giant novel burst into life, 1927 invite you on a theatrical journey of startling originality.

"A jaw droppingly clever and gloriously subversive parable of social mobility, revolution and its suppression…1927 conjure a world so complete it feels as if you've fallen down a rabbit" Guardian

"A mind-blowingly beautiful piece of theatre." Time Out

"This is a perfect alternative show. In fact, it is a perfect show." - Financial Times

"1927: Their star is on the ascendant and there is nothing quite like them." - The Times

Join us after the show on Friday 5 October for a discussion with the 1927 creative team, chaired by Will Wollen, University of Kent. All welcome.
