Kneehigh (UK)

'Witty, surprising, strange, I dreamt about it all night' - The Times (UK)

One of today’s most innovative theatre companies invites you into a stunning world of petals, clay, fire and orchards for this lyrical love story about what happens when dad accidentally sells you to the Devil.

Make a deal with the Devil and you’re going to get burned. It’s simple advice, but so often ignored. When a foolish father makes this most grave of mistakes, it triggers a series of events that sees his daughter strike out into a wilderness that hides heartbreak, misfortune, love and hope.

Based on a Brothers Grimm fairytale and narrated by Satan himself (who also turns his hand to playing the guitar, banjo, drums and double bass), The Wild Bride is a rollercoaster ride of emotion – theatre and dance lashed with devilish humour and set to a live score of blues and bluegrass music.

Over the past 30 years English theatre company Kneehigh has cemented a reputation for ingenious productions. Their works have toured around the world, with their 2008 smash-hit Brief Encounter taking Broadway by storm and earning a Tony Award nomination.

Charting our heroine’s epic voyage from girlhood to womanhood, The Wild Bride is instinctive and magical storytelling – a fun and heartwarming production.

Age recommendation: 12+

Contains strobe lighting.
