Presented by 1927
Running time: approx 1hour 10 mins (no interval)
"A jawdroppingly clever and gloriously subversive parable… 1927 conjure a
world so complete it feels as if you’ve fallen down a rabbit hole." The Guardian
Welcome to the Bayou, a part of the city feared and loathed, wherein
lies the infamous Bayou Mansions: a stinking sprawling 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
Following a sell-out run at the National Theatre two years running, a critically acclaimed Edinburgh Festival run, the
internationally acclaimed show by award-winning company 1927 arrives in Harrogate.
Seamlessly synchronizing live music, performance and storytelling with
stunning film and animation, The Animals and Children... is a theatrical journey of startling originality, like a giant graphic novel burst into life.
"Charles Dickens meets Fritz Lang,
and the early 20thcentury silent movie meets the 21st-century graphic novel,
and you have something of the flavour of this jawdroppingly clever and
gloriously subversive parable." The Guardian
"It’s a rare treat for a theatre lover to discover a show that’s quite like
anything she’s experienced before and adore it unreservedly from the start.
Such was the glorious sensation that company 1927 gave me, with its outstanding
blend of animation, original music and quirky storytelling in 70 nigh on
perfect minutes…A huge hit beckons." The Evening Standard
"technically brilliant use of live action and music combined with superbly
drawn and animated film backgrounds to create shows that combine vintage
cultural nostalgia with a sharp, beady-eyed sense of postmodern alienation." The Scotsman
"While the group has drawn
comparisons to Tim Burton and David Lynch, 1927's black humoured tale of The
Animals and Children Took to the Streets is a truly unforgettable production
and deserves acclaim of its own." Time Out(Sydney)
"1927: Their star is on the
ascendant and there is nothing quite like them." The Times
