‘Brave folk’ an evening of story and song

Posted on 13th February 2018 | in Community

Welcome to an evening of story and song from the lands of the far, far north. Brave Folk (a Farnham Maltings production)

is a mystical Nordic tale fizzing with humour and suspense about love and courage and knowing when to act.

Welcome to the marshlands. A place where you can tell a person by the sound of their squelch. Yorgjin Oxo is a carefree young man and an unlikely hero who has been taught the sounds of storms and how to sing into the rain, until one day the next village disappears and everything changes.

Performed by a company of 5 actors, Brave Folk tells of a place unlike our own, of soggy nights, brave mice, larger than life characters, and the joys of being alive. The show is written by Thomas Crowe and directed by Gavin Stride who says “We want this to feel less like a play and more like an event. Like you have spent the evening in the company of friends”.

Farnham Maltings and Highlights Rural Touring Scheme have previously brought ‘It’s A Wonderful Life’, ‘The Iranian Feast’ and many other great shows to Northumberland.
