Description

Join us for the first performance of our new venture, bringing the very best children and young people’s theatre directly to you at Yate Library.

I Wish I Was A Mountain

based on Faldum - a fairy tale by Hermann Hesse

On the day of the famous annual fair, the town of Faldum receives an unexpected visit. A wanderer offers to grant a wish to anyone who wants one. Before long, the city is transformed. Mansions stand where mud huts once squatted, and beggars ride around in horse drawn carriages. And one man wishes to be turned into a mountain.

Written and performed by former Glastonbury Poetry Slam Champion Toby Thompson, I Wish I was a Mountain uses rhyme and live music to boldly reimagine Herman Hesse’s classic fairy tale.

Running Time: 45 minutes

Recommended for adults and children aged 7+.

To encourage everyone to come and try our new theatre venture, we are asking you to pay what you want for our first performances. Simply watch the show and, at the end, put a donation in the bucket. Just pay whatever you think the experience deserves.

Written and Performed by Toby Thompson
