Free Open-Air Theatre Season 2016 at The Scoop at More London

6pm: The Wawel Dragon
adapted and directed by Nastazja Domaradzka and Phil Willmott
with original music by Theo Holloway

For family audiences this summer, in a celebration of the European community within our capital city, Gods & Monsters will to bring to glorious life Krakow's famous Dragon of Wawel, one of Poland's most enduring, much loved and iconic myths.

In collaboration with Polish theatre-maker Nastazja Domaradzka and using music, puppetry and vibrant storytelling, this is the tale of the ingenious, witty and daring folk who dared to defeat the dragon that lurks beneath Wawel Castleā€¦

8pm: Crime and Punishment - The Rock Musical
Dostoyevsky and the music of Toyah Willcox and Simon Darlow

As the skies darken over The Scoop, so does the story. Published in 1866 Dostoyeksky's Crime and Punishment is one of the most famous and influential novels in world literature. When an idealistic student kills a ruthless money lender, who terrorises the poor of St. Petersburg, the novel challenges us to ask if murder is ever justified.

Rock music works as the perfect medium to express the energy, rebellion and passion of the story. Fittingly this new musical production, adapted and directed by Phil Willmott, will feature specially written songs and favourite tracks by British rock legend, Toyah Willcox and her song-writing partner Simon Darlow.
