Iron John / The Lindworm

 

IRON JOHN

In the forest, at the bottom of a deep pool, Iron John, wild, covered in rust-coloured hair, head to toe, awaits… you.

Your trusty dog? Has disappeared.

Thirty other hunters? Have all disappeared.
Will you go, find what lies out there, deep in the forest?

Award-winning performer and writer Jonathan Brown takes you on a new wild, newly-discovered each performance theatrical telling of this ancient myth,

 

 

including improvised aspects, live musical score (Dave Molz), and in-the-moment plunges into archetypal worlds.

Jonathan won Best Male Performer Brighton Fringe 2013, Best New Play, Brighton Fringe 2012, Best Male Performer Nominee Fringe 2007, Best New Play shortlisting, Fringe 2013.

“Thank you for your show. I loved it… brilliant piece of story telling. It was great to be part of something intimate …. engaging, moving, challenging, compassionate and funny.——pretty much anything I have seen in the theatre over the last couple of years. Afterwards, I felt that I had been taken on a journey and come back knowing something new – which is just what theatre should be like.”
Andrew Miller, co-director, Wishworks Puppet Theatre Company.

It’s your turn to be married, surely. But there’s a (surprise) older brother in the way. A hungry older brother, with scales, a lot of teeth, and a demand to be first wed. “No bride for you until a bride for me!” Well… in that time and tat land, eldest must always marry first.

 

 

 

With brides vanishing every night in the bridal chamber, who will come forward, to take the hand of this unwanted creature and bid him “take off his seventh skin”?
