Dan Colley & Riverbank Arts Centre

For lovers of exquisite, beautifully crafted theatre, a magical realist gem inspired by legendary novelist Gabriel García Márquez’s darkly comic fairy tale.

In a kitchen, two storytellers discover something remarkable – an old man with wings – and invite us to speculate who he is. A neighbour believes he’s an angel. A priest claims he’s an imposter. Pilgrims flock to see him, hoping to be healed, but leave with something very different from what they expected.
