The Yarn

Add to itinerary

Prescot based Imaginarium Theatre are about to embark on their annual tour of parks and community gardens across Liverpool City Region with a reprise, after 10 years, of their acclaimed production of The Yarn by Rob Brannen, supported by Arts Council England and Knowsley Borough of Culture.

Audiences are invited to bring a picnic, step beyond golden haystacks into a rural northern village in the 1800’s, and feast upon a fantastical patchwork of tales, rituals, and bizarre superstitions, as Imaginarium Theatre spins a magical village tale from days of yore.

From The Women Who Died 5 Times, The Cow, A Poor Family and the Inn of Dreams, and Nathanial’s Corpse Ran Away, the stories are as relevant and poignant as they are fantastical; exploring themes of inequality, poverty and hunger as the villagers fight for survival against the coming of enclosures and the industrial age.
