A Thousand Slimy ThingsBased on Samuel Taylor Coleridge's poem 'The Rime of The Ancient Mariner', this play for children takes you on a mythical imaginary adventure on the high seas. A Thousand Slimy Things opens at a beautiful wedding and all seems well, until the Ancient Mariner begins to tell you his story with words full of dread. Your mood changes from impatient to intrigue, fascinated to fearful as this tale of doom and destruction takes you into the gloomy depths of your imagination. Will you brave to let go and follow him? Will this gothic adventure change you forever? Suitable for children aged 10+, the Guardian described the play as "a distinctive mix of storytelling, physical theatre and live music".
