Both performances SOLD OUT
Musician/writer Mick Somerset Ward and Dean and Jarrod of I Monster have worked to create an illustrated audio visual book of short horror stories and surreal poetry. Narrated by prominent names from music and film and soundtracked by a variety of accompaniments from electronics to woodwind, they beckon the listener to follow them into the Gothic and the absurd. Guest narrators on the day include Michael Fielding (The Mighty Boosh), actress Julie Stewart (Coronation Street, It’s a Free World) and Gavin Friday.
This live performance takes place in the intimate, atmospheric setting of the Lantern Theatre. The setting echoes the old BBC story-telling series Jackanory or rather, a Jackanory broadcast from a parallel planet where things aren’t always quite what they seem.
There will be live music, featuring renowned drummer and percussionist Charlie Collins, and live narration, plus animation and visuals creatively directed by Playdead.tv accompanying the tracks.
