Double bill: A Nuclear Winter’s Tale and Pandoras Box

by forestcollective

Forest Collective in collaboration with Grey Matters presents

The King governs a perfect city, until his jealousy and madness take hold, leading to a catastrophic explosion of nuclear proportions, destroying everyone and everything around him. Sixteen years later, in the absence of man, nature has thrived. A twisted forest springs forth, engulfing the ruins, and in this warped environment grows new love, forgiveness, and a chance to heal old wounds.

Shakespeare meets Chernobyl in this devised collaboration between Forest Collective and newcomers Grey Matters. Puppetry vies with performer while scenography melds with spectator to create a uniquely enthralling theatrical experience for audiences of all ages.
Together, we invite you to Sentido Funf where your very surroundings will come to life to tell you a story…

Our new venue Sentido Funf is also an amazing bar, with a fantastic little lounge out the front. So please come and see the show, and stay for a drink or a bite to eat.
