Company of Wolves – Promenade Theatre

Thursday 27th October, Friday 28th October and Saturday 29th October

Join Bedgebury Pinetum and Forest for a unique and exciting theatrical experience!

Angela Carter’s classic tale The Company of Wolves has been adapted by the theatre company Burn the Curtain into a promenade adventure for runners and walkers, retelling the dark and mysterious modern classic in a totally immersive and unique way.

Audience members will follow one of two routes, by either running for 5 miles or walking for 3 miles, and the story will be performed along the way, with regular stops throughout.

The stories include ancient folklore and mythical tales known to us all such Red Riding Hood, Peter and the Wolf and Wolf Alice.  In The Company of Wolves, Red Riding Hood lives in a tiny village on the edge of dark and distant mountains and one night she puts on her red shoes and cloak and heads into the forest alone, watched by unseen eyes.  As the shadows lengthen, she begins to run and the hunt begins.

Participants will need to be prepared for physical activity, either running or walking, and appropriate clothing and footwear will be required.   You will also need to bring along your own torch or head torch.

Join Red Riding Hood as she walks and runs through the forest, where wolves may also hide at night!

Theatre company Burn the Curtain will be performing their exciting outdoor show – The Company of Wolves – on the Thursday 27th, Friday 28th and Saturday 29th of October.

Starting from the Bedgebury Visitor Centre at 7.00pm, for a 7.30pm start, the event is suitable for children aged 8 plus, if accompanied by an adult.

The performance lasts for approximately 2.5 hours and includes an interval with free hot chocolate!

Tickets cost £18 per adult (aged 18 plus), and £15 per child, ages 8 to 17 years and are available from the Forestry Commission Box Office from Friday 9th September.
