The Animals and Children Took to the Streets, by 1927

The Animals and Children Took to the Streets, 2012 Lyttelton

Welcome to the Bayou, a part of the city feared and loathed, wherein lies the infamous Bayou Mansions: a stinking sprawling tenement block, where curtain-twitchers and peeping-toms live side by side, and the wolf... is always at the door.

When Agnes Eaves and her daughter arrive late one night, does it signal hope in this hopeless place, or has the real horror only just begun?

Following a sell-out run at the National last winter, the internationally acclaimed show by award-winning company 1927 returns. Seamlessly synchronizing live music, performance and storytelling with stunning film and animation, The Animals and Children... is a theatrical journey of startling originality, like a giant graphic novel burst into life.

★★★★
‘A jawdroppingly clever and gloriously subversive parable… 1927 conjure a world so complete it feels as if you’ve fallen down a rabbit hole.’
Guardian

This production ran from 12 December 2012 to 10 January 2013
