Theatre: The Tale of the Cockatrice

Deep in the vaults of an ancient priory, a hideous creature awakens. A deadly cockatrice is born! Bold knights flee in terror... Can a humble nun defeat the beast?

Multi award-winning Mumblecrust Theatre present The Tale of the Cockatrice, a fun and fascinating journey based on a legend from British folklore.

Combining myth and history, two storytellers use breathtaking puppetry and object theatre along with spine-tingling live music to present this dark and winding fable for monster-lovers young and old.

Mumblecrust create smart, innovative theatre for families and young people by inventing and reinventing the weird and wonderful! They are touring the UK in 2018 with support from Arts Council England.

Winners of the Best Newcomer to Brighton Fringe and Best of Brighton Fringe: Children and Families Award in 2017.
