The  Last  Woodwose @ Aldeburgh Jubilee Hall

 

Diana  Quick  will  read  the  main  role  of  this  legendary  shape  shifting  wild  woman  in  this  evocative  new  play  by  Thea  Smiley.  Martin  Bonger,  last  seen  in  Suffolk  in  Return  of  the  Wildman  joins  her  with  Sylvia  Hallett  accompanying  the  reading  with  a  blend  of  traditional  and  original  music.

 

Storm of Stories 2019

 

Wonderful Beast’s 4th arts festival of theatre, music, fairy tales and stories in a feast of shape - shifting  delights is currently being programmed.

 

A highlight will be a new music theatre production featuring She’koyokh, the internationally acclaimed Klezmer and Balkan band,  local schools,  Aldeburgh Young Musician students from Snape Maltings,  the Wonderful Beast Singers (last seen in the Return of the Wildman tour autumn 2017) and a professional cast of actors. The production will be inspired by ‘Sharing Our Stories’ a project with young people from mainly Eastern Europe, working locally in the hospitality industry. School children will learn dances and songs from such countries as Hungary and Romania, and professional actors will animate folk and fairy tales that resonate with the poignant and exciting themes of leaving home, seeking ones fortune and adventure.
