Following last year’s Around The World in Eighty Days, Quirk Theatre Company return to the Exeter Phoenix this December with an adaptation of George MacDonald’s celebrated 1872 fairytale The Princess and the Goblin.
This will be the ninth year that Quirk Theatre Company has collaborated with Exeter Phoenix to present a family winter show. Quirk productions are renowned for their ingenious theatrical devices, freshness of interpretation, and simple but stunning costume and set design.
Founders of Quirk Theatre, Simon Hall and Andy Brodie said: “We believe that strong storytelling and honesty in performance underpin good theatre; this doesn’t mean that our shows aren’t a good lark, but it does mean that we want to make something that will endure in children’s memories, creating a love of theatre that should last a lifetime.”
To coincide with the performance of The Princess and the Goblin, Exeter Phoenix will be running free fun-filled activity workshops for families who have booked to see the show.
The show is suitable for children ages 5 and up, and running time is approximately 70 minutes with no interval.
