Father Nandru & The Wolves archiveA lost village, star-crossed lovers, mysterious wolves and the extraordinary story of a community trying to save what is most precious to them before it is lost forever. Five hundred years ago, founding fathers built a log church in a small village deep in the heart of Transylvania where, centuries later, the villagers still worship. When Eveline, the lop-faced daughter of a leading family, elopes with Vadim, the crippled son of a Roma dancing clan, the little village is sent into a frenzy. Only the priest, Father Nandru, is aware that just around the corner a far more dangerous threat is lurking, and that this community must put their differences aside if anything is to survive into the future. Written especially for Wilton's Music Hall by award-winning playwright Julian Garner and designed by Hanne Horte around the eccentricities of this unique and beautiful building, Father Nandru & The Wolves is a captivating folk tale, based on a true Romanian story and narrated in verse. Experience dream-like design, larger than life puppetry and some impressive feats of engineering. This will be Wilton's last full scale production before going under wraps & The Chrysalis Club emerges. For dreamers, dancers and adventurers aged 8 - 108. With traditional folk and Gypsy music from Transylvania by Csergo Band
