TOURING IRELAND AND UK APRIL - JUNE 2017
Wed 10th May @ 7.30pm in Cushendall Golf Club - £8 pay @ door
Based on the book ‘The Faerie Thorn and Other Stories’ by Jane Talbot, The Faerie Thorn will delight and bewitch Cushendall through recreations of Talbot’s dark and imaginative and tales, propelling the audience into a world of devilish debts, trysts and trades, broken bargains and unjust trials; of magic, quick-wittedness, hoodwinking and revenge. The stories inhabit a vivid and dangerous world controlled by a complex fairy mafia including factions like the Memory Takers, the Time Weepers, the Bad Talkers and trolls, which humans tackle at their peril.
Jane QUOTE “It’s been a thrilling experience seeing my stories come to life in such an imaginative way.”
Multi-award winning theatre company Big Telly have carved out a reputation over the past thirsty years as bold, risk-taking theatre makers, and The Faerie Thorn production will be a vibrant, contemporary, physical theatre, incorporating masks, movement and illusion. The Faerie Thorn will be witty, dark and wickedly comedic dealing with inexorable human tensions in a way that is shocking and yet terrifyingly familiar.
