THE FOX AND THE CHILD
A new storytelling show with music and projection which peels off the layers to reveal the darkness beneath.
Eyes meet across restaurants, buttons and hooks are undone, vows are unwound and worlds break. A story where a young woman meets an older man and falls in love, a woman dreams she becomes a fox, and a fox hunts a child.
Written and performed by Stephanie Kempson (Beyond The Ridiculous), with music composed by Rowan Evans (The Hours Before We Wake), directed by Maisie Newman (Spill: A Verbatim Show About Sex) and with projection by James D Kent.

Earlier extracts have been performed in Bristol and London.
