A deliciously dark retelling of Henny Penny, the classic tale of survival.

Under the twinkling lights of a charming French café a waitress sits polishing her knives. Set in the shadows of the First World War, one cunning customer is about to be served a meal he will never forget. At Le Monde Bouleversé revenge is a dish best served cold.

A Feast of Bones is a musical fable from Theatre Lovett featuring live music and an original score. The company takes their inspiration from the story of Henny Penny, paralleling this story of five birds who joyously march towards an unforeseen doom with the jingoistic march of Europe towards a ‘glorious’ war in 1914.

Supported by The Arts Council of Ireland and Culture Ireland as part of GB18: Promoting Irish Arts in Britain.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for A Feast of Bones are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
