A Necessary Angel Theatre Company presentation


Produced as an immersive audio experience, this five-part drama conceived and directed by Alan Dilworth, is narrated by Dora Award-winner Maev Beaty with original sound design and mix by Dora Award-winner Debashis Sinha. The Great Fire evokes a world both everyday and otherworldly. Within a familiar folk setting of competing rural villages, Schimmelpfennig conjures a magical yet modern world beset by prejudice, misunderstanding, plague and climate catastrophe. And as we so often find in times of trauma, there remains friendship, and wonder, and even love.

No Latecomers will be permitted.

This a performance for small audiences. Limited seating available.
