As the shadow of the Black Witch draws ever closer...
Here's a first look at the cast for our brand new show, The Tin Drum, which is being brought to life by the team who created Dead Dog in a Suitcase (and other love songs), Mike Shepherd, Charles Hazlewood and Carl Grose.
The full ensemble cast is Nandi Bhebhe, Les Bubb, Dom Coyote, Damon Daunno, Rina Fatania, Angela Hardie, Bettrys Jones, Patrycja Kujawska, Beverly Rudd and Sarah Wright. The musicians are Ross Hughes, Alex Lupo and Ruth Wall.
The production reunites Kneehigh regulars Nandi Bhebhe, Dom Coyote, Rina Fatania, Patrycja Kujawska, Beverly Rudd and Sarah Wright, who have variously appeared in Tristan & Yseult, Dead Dog in a Suitcase (and other love songs) and 946. The Amazing Story of Adolphus Tips.
Mike said ‘I am thrilled to have reassembled the creative team behind Dead Dog in a Suitcase (and other love songs) to make a new version of Günter Grass’ extraordinary novel The Tin Drum. Our iconic anti-hero, Oskar, will lead us through a world as delicate as moth's wings and as incandescent as a blazing saw mill. A grand musical satire, it promises to be furious, funny and fiercely full of hope - a story very much for now’
