Beauty and the Beast, and Other Lovers of the Rose

This event is in the past. This is an archive page for reference.

For adults and children aged 14+.

Acclaimed performance storyteller Ben Haggarty and musician-composer Sherry Robinson make a sortie into the unfathomable mysteries of the heart to ask ‘do we choose love, or does love choose us?’

This physical, brooding and compelling performance is full of mythic beauty, underscored by a rich and alluring musical soundtrack.
In an unashamedly romantic exploration of the intoxication and brutality of love, lust and betrayal, it draws together comedic games in paradise, a broken vow of chastity, a reunion in death, and culminates in an extraordinary retelling of a seemingly familiar fairytale for grown-ups, which will creep into your waking dream and haunt you with its beauty.

Full of exquisite joy and pain – just like the real thing.
