The Devil’s Violin theatre company is bringing the new production STOLEN to Wales as part of their UK tour.
The company says that the show is an epic journey, through a dreamlike land where you will encounter a king turned to stone, an old woman living in the claw of a giant cockerel and a glass man filled with wasps.
Daniel Morden’s tale is interwoven with string accompaniment of Sarah Moody and Oliver Wilson-Dickson.
Daniel Morden, The Devil’s Violin said, “The Devil’s Violin perform traditional stories: we aren’t in the business of making social realism. But we don’t make escapism either. The classic quest template seemed appropriate. Something is lost, or broken or stolen, so someone must venture out of their comfort zone in an attempt to restore harmony. The central character is a homebody not a hero. He isn’t in search of glory. He just wants his life back. But to achieve this he must undergo trials and confront his own inner demons.”
