The Animals and Children took to the Streets

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, Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea and The Magic Flute. Like a giant novel burst into life, 1927 invite you on a theatrical journey of startling originality.

“It’s rare to see a theatre production that is genuinely nothing like anything you’ve ever experienced before, but 1927’s latest witty creation definitely fits the bill… Wonderfully creepy and at times hilarious.”Liverpool Echo

“There’s a realistic undertone to the spectacle in front of us, and a lesson to be learned… A truly unusual production that is darkly enchanting and curious.”Broadway World

“A jaw droppingly clever and gloriously subversive parable… 1927 conjure a world so complete it feels as if you’ve fallen down a rabbit hole.” – The Guardian

“A mind blowingly beautiful piece of theatre.” – Time Out
