Have you experienced the hybrid work of 1927 Productions yet? Peek into the creepy graphic world brought to life in their dystopian hit The Animals and Children took to the Streets. The show returns to London this month after a four-year absence. Time to get booking!
After three seasons at the National Theatre and extensive international touring, multi-award winning company 1927 brings its smash-hit The Animals and Children took to the Streets back to London for a limited season at Lyric Hammersmith from 19 February to 16 March 2019, with a press night on Friday 22 February.
As with other 1927 shows Golem, Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea, The Magic Flute and The Krazy Kat Project, The Animals and Children took to the Streets features the company’s hybrid combination of spoken word, film, music, song, movement and hand-made animation in a minutely choreographed harmony.
The Animals and Children took to the Streets tells the story of the Bayou Mansions, a sprawling stinking 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? Like a giant graphic novel burst into life, 1927 invite the audience on a theatrical journey of startling originality.
The Animals and Children took to the Streets is written and directed by Suzanne Andrade and has film, animation and design by Paul Barritt, costumes by Sarah Munro and Esme Appleton and music by Lillian Henley.
The Animals and Children took to the Streets runs from 19 February to 16 March 2019 at the Lyric Hammersmith, King Street, London W6 0QL, with performances Mondays to Saturdays at 7.30pm, Wednesday matinees at 1.30pm and Saturday matinees at 2.30pm. Tickets are priced £10-£42. CLICK HERE TO PURCHASE!!
