Troubadour Stageworks presents
IN THE STONES
“It really lifted my spirits – my heartfelt congratulations to you all.”
Hugh Bonneville (Downton Abbey, Paddington)
This winter Troubadour Stageworks presents a new play that explores the world of folklore around us. Using music, local customs and strange stories the narrative slips seamlessly through time and brings to churches vibrant with local lore a new flash of inventive drama.
We are very excited to be coming to St Stephen Walbrook – with history spanning back to 200 AD and the Cult of Mithras, right through to the founding of the Samaritans, via Christopher Wren and Nathaniel Hodges (the only doctor who stayed with his patients in London during the plague of 1665), this is the perfect venue to demonstrate the flexibility of the show and how the script changes to reflect the space.
Troubadour Stageworks is a young theatrical charity based in South West Wiltshire, and are coming to London at the end of their inaugural tour of Cornwall, produced by Carn to Cove. Their visit to Cornwall includes workshops in local schools and involvement of community artists to weave the key element of local participation into the central story. Having toured Shakespeare in the summer of 2021, and with this new play by Sophie Haxworth and Mingma Hughes strikes to the heart of the company ethos and we hope to continue its development and journey in the coming months.
