faery playThe Faerie Play is a show for children and families, set on an organic farm.  Here a mischievous resident fairy steals a child who is a member of the local theatre school.  This little girl must be found by the rest of the cast (and the audience) before she disappears forever into the fairy world.  By joining in and following the trail of the fairies and some of the other residents of the Sharing Farm, the audience will help to solve the mystery of the lost child.

Meet the raptors, voles, daisies and potatoes that live on the Sharing Farm through Frank Rader and Iona Dan and Joseph Paul’s wonderful puppets. And after solving the mystery at the sunflower circle, join us after the show in the Farm’s healing circle for tea.  There will also be light snacks available from the Farm’s cob oven in between the performances.

This production brings together again the team who brought you the hit show Salmon Row at the Britannia Shipyards in 2011 and 2013. Using puppets, stilts, music and actors, this play, like Salmon Row, takes the audience through the site to share the secrets of the land and its residents.  Also included in the production are members of the Richmond Gateway Academy and children from the Richmond area.

Please note that this is a site specific play with the audience walking through the farm site.  Please wear comfortable clothes and (preferably closed toes) shoes.  If you are attending the 6.30 performance, please bring a light coat or jacket, as it may become cool later in the evening.
