Deep in the vaults of an ancient priory a hideous creature awakens. A deadly cockatrice is born and while bold knights flee in terror, will a humble nun be able to defeat the beast?

Multi-Award-Winning Mumblecrust Theatre present two muddle-headed storytellers, an obscure British legend, puppetry and evocative live music in this dark and winding fable for monster-lovers young and old.

Mumblecrust Theatre create innovative theatre for families and young people. Combining storytelling and live music; puppetry and object theatre; history and fiction, Mumblecrust invent
and reinvent the weird and wonderful, drawing on well-known stories and legends.

The company comprises actor, puppeteer and designer
Katie, and performer, composer, and director Anthony. The pair have collaborated on a number of other projects, including: satirical music video Tawdry Child, Pinecone Penguin’s King Kong the Musical, puppeteering the Mermaid in Luc Mollinger’s creature feature short Battered
and co-directing (and creating puppets for) new musical
Heartwood.
