Ever wondered if you missed your chance to be wild?
Sonya has been spinning a lot of plates recently; she’s really good at it but she’s definitely not the untamed woman she thought she’d be by now. Sometimes she feels like a feral beast backed into a corner. There’s no escaping social expectation and she fears she’s missed her chance.
In September 2017 Sonya headed off on a hitchhiking mission to Oban to find 60’s folk legend and notorious wild child Anne Briggs. Sonya was drowning in domesticity and she thought Anne could swoop in and save her.
Feral asks why women are taking on more ‘mental load’ than ever before. Harnessing live music by The Greyhounds, storytelling and the odd party trick, Feral tells an intimate story with universal application, empowering audiences to make wilder choices.
Folk band, The Greyhounds, who debuted at Todmorden Folk Festival in 2016, will play a one hour set to close the show, and their FERAL EP comes out to coincide with this tour.
FERAL was created with support from The Dukes Lancaster, Brewery Arts Centre, Kendal and Theatre by the Lake via Route 555, designed to support the creation of new theatre in the North West.
We are grateful for the support, time and space provided by The Boo, Horse and Bamboo Theatre, Rossendale and Todmorden Folk Festival.
