An international hit theatre show arrives in Lancaster this week.

The Animals And Children Took To The Streets had its world premiere at Sydney Opera House and has enjoyed three sell out, critically acclaimed London seasons, including two at the National Theatre.

Now it will be performed at The Dukes in Lancaster from November 7 to 9.

Prior to its Lancaster dates, the show will be performed in Kiev, Yervan in Armenia, Baku in Azerbaijan and Charleroi in Belgium, before going on to dates in Valetta, Malta, France and China.

The Animals and Children Took to the Streets is described as like a giant graphic novel bursting into life, blending fine crafted animation with twisted storytelling, live action and music.

The story is based in Bayou, where lies the infamous Bayou Mansions, a sprawling, stinking tenement block in which curtain-twitchers and peeping toms live side by side and the wolf is always at the door.

When Agnes Eaves and her daughter arrive late one night, does it signal hope in this hopeless place or has the real horror only just begun?

Theatre company 1927, who have been described as the “bright new things of British theatre” are behind the show.

Following the November 7 performance there will be a talkback with members of 1927 which is free to ticketholders.

Tickets are priced £14-16 and £8 for the November 9 matinee. Concessions receive a further £2 off not in conjunction with any other offer and excluding matinees.
