Adapted from Gabriel García Márquez’s short story which was subtitled ‘A Tale for Children’, Collapsing Horse bring its magical realism back to the stage after an acclaimed debut at the Fringe Festival. It takes the tropes and accoutrements of the traditional world of fables and fairy-tales without ever resting upon the laurels of this domain. Narrated by Genevieve Hulme Beaman and her silent partner Manus Halligan, A Very Old Man with Enormous Wings translates across all ages with seamless transitions between puppets and props and a charming design by Andrew Clancy who we featured in the magazine last month.
