The Wrong Crowd in association with Soho Theatre presents KITE created and co-directed by Rachael Canning and Hannah Mulder touring from 18 February – 12 May
Stuck in her Grandma’s obsessively tidy flat, a recently orphaned girl discovers a kite which comes to life and takes her on a wild adventure. Little does she know that Grandma has her own brand of magic and the wind will bring them together in ways they never would have imagined.
‘Who needs words, when theatre is this expressive?’ The Times (on 2016 production of Kite)
‘Enchanting’ 5 stars, The Stage (on 2016 production of Kite)
A play without words, Kite is inspired by the world of indoor-kite flying and stories such as The Snowman and The Red Balloon. For everyone aged seven and over, it features The Wrong Crowd’s imaginative storytelling, exquisite puppetry and design, dance, originally composed music and – of course- kites.
The Wrong Crowd first produced Kite to acclaim at Soho Theatre as part of London International Mime Festival and on tour in 2016. The 2019 production features a brand new cast and development to the play’s central story, capturing the magic and poignancy of the original whilst creating a strong new narrative about how to find strength and love in the face of loss.
The production is created and co-directed by designer/director Rachael Canning (Artistic Director of The Wrong Crowd) and playwright/director Hannah Mulder (Creative Associate of The Wrong Crowd) and. The creative team also features composer Isobel Waller-Bridge and lighting designer Joe Price.
Kite is showing at The Theatre Chipping Norton on 13 March at 7:45.
