Current Production, Summer 2014Whispering_Wood_Teaser

The Whispering Wood by Lucy-Ann Martin

In the open air at Coulsdon Manor Hotel

Buy Tickets

Come into the woods with us this summer for a truly magical open air production.

Performed within a sheltered glade, we’ll take you to a time when bands of travelling players toured the realm, playing by woodland clearings and parish pumps. They brought with them age-old tales of adventure, romance, laughter and darkness.

In the whispering wood you’ll find fairies and fools; ordinary folk and fallen princesses; stolen children and murdered brides. Tales you may remember – and tales you may never have known. Still you will recognise them though. They’re amongst humankind’s oldest stories – profound, funny, thrilling or chilling.

Remember – fairytales aren’t just for children.

See our Facebook and Twitter pages for the latest production updates and photos.

We have had a wonderful first week of performances – with large audiences and dazzling sunsets.
