In the Suffolk village of Woolpit, two mysterious children with green-tinged skin are found by the wolf pits. Are they from a strange land? Are they fairy folk? Or are they simply - green?
Following The Wild Man of Orford, The Green Children of Woolpit is another story from 12th century Suffolk, another fascinating exploration of the unexplained.
We were delighted to return to the beautiful Orford for the first performance of The Green Children, generously supported by the Thomas Marshall Education Fund, which aims to advance the education, training and life skills of the young people of Mozambique to enable them to make a sustainable living and provide active support within their communities. All proceeds go towards the charity. Find out more and support the charity here.
We also enjoyed talking to the Arts Award students at the local primary school, and giving a family puppet workshop in St Bartholomew's Church in Orford.
The Green Children's next outing is at the 2017 Lindfield Arts Festival, a lovely festival local to us in Sussex. Please note that the advertised run time is incorrect - the show runs 2-2.50pm, not 2-4.50pm! Find out more here.
