Long Nose Puppets present - Flyaway Katie
- 30 May 2015 11am-12pm, 2-3pm
Katie is all alone and feeling grey. The birds in the picture on her wall look so colourful - if only Katie could be as bright as them, who knows what might happen?
Bursting with colour, movement and surprises, Flyaway Katie is an inspiring flight of fancy about the power of imagination.

“When you lose someone, you write a charm in a bottle, drop it in the sea and it will find a way to your lost soul... the charm lets them find their way home, so they say.”
Jen’s mother is dying; she returns home to Cornwall, a world full of folk tales, mermaids, uncertainty and drift. On the wild coast where her childhood happened she finds Matthew, the boyfriend she left behind, who has been staring into the sea for so long that the sea has started staring back into him.
Lamorna Ash’s magical and haunting debut play is an exploration of the oil slicks laid over our histories, the sources and centres of our lives. Zennor was developed at The North Wall during the TheatreCraft residency at Easter 2015.

By William Shakespeare
Directed by Paul Hart
“Let slip the dogs of war”
A compelling production of Shakespeare’s great political thriller.
When Caesar returns to Rome from the wars a virtual dictator, Cassius and Brutus resolve that his ambition must be curbed. But even if their conspiracy is successful can they survive its consequences?
Julius Caesar is a great opportunity to see emerging talent from one of the UK’s top drama schools. Recent graduates of the School have had leading roles in BBC’s Wolf Hall, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time in the West End, RSC’s Oppenheimer, feature film Kingsman: The Secret Service, BBC’s The Musketeers and ITV’s Emmerdale.
“The Oxford School of Drama is in the top rank of British drama schools.” Nicholas Hytner, Artistic Director, National Theatre
Paul Hart has directed productions for the Donmar Warehouse, Propeller and National Theatre. His recent production of The Tempest at the Watermill Theatre, Newbury was “a truly magical experience” (The Oxford Times).
