EVERY WILD BEAST
The stars are empty, the moon has fallen from the sky and the mountains are full of monsters. Barri collects newspaper clippings and listens to vinyl in her grandmother’s attic. Sam is trying to outrun a community support officer investigating the murder of several domestic badgers. Weaved from folklore and fable EVERY WILD BEAST tells a tale about courage, curiosity and running away from really big scary things. This is not a love story, this is an adventure.
NIGHT CREATURE is the retelling of an Ancient Greek myth about a pretty nymph turned monster; a fable about losing yourself to the dark blue sea. Folklore and legend collide with the 21st century as the myth of Scylla is told through poetry, storytelling and an original score to bring a new world to life in the imagination of the listener. You didn’t make this monster. It was already here.
Lion House Theatre produce new writing created through poetry, spoken word, traditional storytelling and the surreal to create their own brand of contemporary folklore. They want you to feel like you've stepped into a book.
Of Every Wild Beast - "One of the first true gems of this year's EdFringe... I'll be keeping an eye on Lion House from now on, as great things have come from them, and more will undoubtedly follow... A play that truly should not be missed" British Theatre Guide
