I'm very excited to be attending the première of Jennie Farley's new verse narrative, Shadowplay, on 24 January 2014. Jennie has been working with Deepspace of Cheltenham to create a Gothic winter fantasy of dolls, puppets, abandoned attics and devilish desire. Jennie's rich and precise language leads us into a weird, yet uncannily familiar world, which will appeal to anyone who ever woke up in the middle of the night as a child to find themselves terrified of their own toys, waiting in the darkness. I've had a sneak preview and can't wait to see the full performance with puppets, sound and visual effects.
