“Extraordinary. Kneehigh is back in top form!”– Variety
“…timeless story, irresistible music, and wildly imaginative theatricality.”
Kneehigh Theatre, the daring and magical troupe behind Brief Encounter, is back — with a red-hot folktale, a brutal edge and a beating heart.
In The Wild Bride,a father accidentally sells his daughter to the Devil. And, although our heroine cleverly escapes into an elemental wonderland where she meets a prince, there’s more to this story than happily ever after. Expect a wonderful bluegrass score, a fantastic live band, and a fiendishly clever romance for adults and brave children(ages 8+).
EDINBURGH FRINGE REVIEW AWARD
“Stunning theatre in the hands of a master storyteller.” – British Theatre Guide
“★★★★★ Laugh out loud funny and tear-inducingly moving. A great performance.” – Bristol Evening Post
In the final hours of April 2004, Tristan Sturrock, Kneehigh’s leading man from Brief Encounter, joined the May Day festivities in Cornwall to celebrate the coming of spring. A buoyant father-to-be, his life changed in a moment that night…
Instantly engaging, when Tristan walks on stage, his lyrical presence defies his assertion that this story is both his and true. However, Mayday Mayday is“life affirming theatre at its very very best…” (The Cornishman). Tristan takes us through his solo tale of recovery with great wit, a few props and grand operatic flourishes. Mayday Mayday is a love letter to Tristan’s life and the people who saved it.
