A Very Old Man With Enormous Wings : Little Angel Theatre Company
Ushering in the new year, Little Angel Theatre in association with Kneehigh bring their unrivalled puppetry to BAC with A Very Old Man with Enormous Wings. Based on the short story by Gabriel García Márquez from his 1955 collection Leaf Storm, the production follows the tale of a fantastical winged creature who lands in a small seaside village and cures the sick. It is a universal tale questioning belief, greed, how people react to the unknown and how we treat each other in exceptional circumstances.
Marquez’s original story is set in his native Columbia and was written for children. The Little Angel Theatre/Kneehigh version follows Garcia’s storyline but has been set in a rural English seaside town. The company worked together alongside script writer Anna Maria Murphy to translate Garcia’s written word into a visual feast.
