A world-exclusive dramatic reading of Max Porter’s follow-up to Grief Is the Thing with Feathers: Lanny
Lanny is a story about a family whose village is peopled by the living and the dead. It’s a story about a boy with a gift for friendship and the traces of enchantment he leaves in the closely woven lives around him.
Observing it all, and orchestrating a spellbinding tapestry of voices, is Dead Papa Toothwort who has woken from his slumber and is searching for his favourite. He is looking for the boy.
Immerse yourself in a live performance about art, myth and the extraordinary strangeness of everyday life. It features a cast of actors who conjure the voices of English village life past and present, led by one of the most exciting literary talents to emerge in recent years.
