Lands of Glass
Come and visit the enchanting, hilarious, weird and wonderful town of Quinnipak. Of course, it isn’t real.
Quinnipak is a town where a glassmaker buys an engine simply to watch the world go by quickly, where his wife has a mouth so beautiful it sends people mad, where a musician leads a pulley-operated choir with ropes lifting the singers’ wrists.
A remarkable team of musicians and actors bring Quinnipak to life. Adventures in glass percussion included.
Directed by Annie Rigby, this is the first ever adaptation of leading Italian author, Alessandro Baricco’s award-winning novel. We are planning to tour the finished production in 2014.
Musicians: Tom Bancroft, Brendan Murphy, Beccy Owen
