1927 and The Old Market

The Animals & Children Took To The Streets

19 Dec 18–13 Jan 19

Main House: Seated

We are delighted to welcome back the award-winning theatre company 1927 (previously at TOM with the stunning show Golem). Like a giant novel burst into life, we invite you on a theatrical journey of startling originality.

Welcome to the Bayou, a part of the city feared and loathed wherein lies the infamous Bayou Mansions; a sprawling stinking tenement block, where curtain-twitchers and peeping-toms live side by side, and the wolf is always at the door. When Agnes Eaves and her daughter arrive late one night, does it signal hope in this hopeless place, or has the real horror only just begun?

Seamlessly synchronising live music, performance and storytelling with stunning films and animation, this is the wickedly twisted international hit tale from the multiple award-winning company behind Golem and The Magic Flute.

★★★★★ - “This is a perfect alternative show. In fact, it is a perfect show”
Financial Times

A mind-glowingly beautiful piece of theatre”
Time Out London

1927 conjure a world so complete it feels as if you’ve fallen down a rabbit hole”
