The Rat Affair presents RAT
Sat 7 March, 8pm

The Lyric

£12 / £5 (10-18s)

The Rat Affair are proud to present RAT – The Pied Piper of Hamelin reimagined through live music and shadow puppetry. Amidst a musical score that shifts between sensationally boisterous Eastern European folk and sparse reflective piano works, RAT tells the tale of a curious man who offers to rid a corrupt town in crisis by driving its vermin infestation away. It questions the very nature of theatre by removing speech from the narrative, choosing instead to adopt the use of exquisite puppetry and projection to present a powerful spectacle of light and sound.

RAT brings together a host of outstanding artists working in theatre and performance, promising to be one of the most exciting experiences of 2020! Suitable for audiences 10+.

Doors open 7:30pm for an 8pm start.

“it awakes our senses and imagination, provoking those fundamental questions of human condition” Agnieszka Blonska, Theatre Director & Senior Lecturer at Falmouth University

“fiercely beautiful imagery with extraordinary music and a biting political comment” Mike Shepherd, Artistic Director of Kneehigh

“that’s what being in love sounds like – dramatic and blistering and gorgeous” Sarah Gosling, BBC Introducing
