'Theatrical sorcery, searing music, startling visual tableaux, grace and passion - I hope this fairy tale has many many bookings all over the world’. Marina Warner
Opening in an empty theatre with just a ‘ghost light’ on stage - the lamp that burns when a theatre is ‘dark’ - the ghosts of former actors emerge. They are ready to play. As they transform into the characters of the story they will be retelling, the magic of theatre begins.
Long ago and far away a King and Queen were placed under a spell. Fertility was disrupted. They called the Bluebell Fairy, but magic comes at a cost and woe betide those who do not keep their promises.
Weaving together plots and characters from ancient folktales, Bluebelle reminds us that life is shaped by the stories we tell and leave behind. It unravels our desires, our weaknesses, and ultimately our strength and ability to care for those born after us.
'A magical, mesmerising tale... Bluebelle is an innovative masterpiece.’ West End Best Friends
'Big on atmosphere...The stagecraft is a delight... And the physical-theatre - grotesque witchery, swirling magicians, questing gallops, lonely wanderings - is the stuff of good storytelling'. Springback Magazine
