Trick of the Light Theatre’s new show is an eerie, elegant tale without words about death, love, grief and monsters.
After a girl’s granny passes away, she starts to suspect she is being pursued by the smoke demon shapeshifter from the old woman’s stories.
In the tradition of Spirited Away and Coraline, The Griegol is a mythic, gorgeously rendered dark fantasy for brave children and lovers of atmospheric theatre. Conjuring magic and laughter out of silhouettes, puppetry, live music and animation, it’s also yet another storytelling masterclass from the wizards of shadowplay who brought us the award-winning The Bookbinder (AAF2019).
