A wedding, a party, a perfect day. What could possibly go wrong?
Suddenly a strange old man with glittering eyes interrupts.
Beware! The Ancient Mariner is here!
His look stops you dead, his words full of dread - he starts to tell you a tale set on the High Seas, full of doom and destruction, that takes you down to the murky depths of your imagination.
Will you dare to follow him? And if you do, will you ever be the same again?
Coleridge’s classic poem is transformed into a swashbuckling adventure, awash with live music and highly physical comedy by Tangere Arts, who have previously delighted children and adults alike at the Royal Exchange with HOOD IN THE WOOD, A TASTY TALE and TIN SOLDIER.
Based on The Rime Of The Ancient Mariner by Samuel Taylor Coleridge.
Suitable for all brave souls aged 9+
“a rough poetry that is beautifully matched by a musically underscored production” (The Guardian on TIN SOLDIER)
“an immense performance – delivers that atmosphere in spades” (The Stage on TIN SOLDIER)
“catchy score…dark but gripping – thrillingly fashioned in Lagden’s physical creation.” (The Independent on TIN SOLDIER)
