Emmett Robinson Theatre
54 St. Philip Street
Charleston, SC 29401

English theater company 1927 (Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea, The Animals and Children Took to the Streets) has unearthed a series of rarely told folktales that offer a glimpse into imaginations from a pre-industrialized age. Tyrannical ogres, magical birds, and very, very fat cats are brought to life with the company’s signature fusion of handcrafted animation and storytelling, with a live score involving Peruvian prayer boxes, donkey jaws, violins, and musical saws. This world premiere considers the narratives of our forefathers and how they might shape the stories of our future.

Duration: Approximately 1 hour, 15 minutes
