Big Telly Theatre Company presents
THE FAERIE THORN

NI's oldest established professional theatre company presents its latest production


Adapted by ZoŽ Seaton & Shelley Atkinson
Directed by ZoŽ Seaton
Music by Garth MacConaghie


Based on the book ĎThe Faerie Thorn and Other Storiesí by Jane Talbot, The Faerie Thorn will recreate Talbotís dark, imaginative and bewitching tales, propelling the audience into a world of devilish debts, trysts and trades, broken bargains and unjust trials; of magic, quick-wittedness, hoodwinking and revenge.

The stories inhabit an incredibly vivid and dangerous world controlled by a complex fairy mafia including factions like the memory takers, the time keepers, the bad talkers and trolls, which humans tackle at their peril.

Over the past thirty years, Big Telly has carved a reputation as bold, risk-taking theatre maker, and The Faerie Thorn production will be a vibrant, contemporary, physical theatre, incorporating masks, movement and illusion. The Faerie Thorn will be witty, dark and wickedly comedic dealing with inexorable human tensions in a way that is shocking and yet terrifyingly familiar.
