Marvellous Machine‘s stage adaptation of Angela Carter’s story ‘The Tiger’s Bride’, which debuted in November 2016, is making a return this month to the Oxford Playhouse. Performances are running from Monday 11th until Saturday the 16th September and tickets are now on sale. In my review of the play last year, I wrote that “talent and creativity” are combined to produce “a charming and, at times, stirring play.” Earlier this year, I also had the pleasure of talking with director and producer Louise Egan and musical director Becki Reed about their production – you can read our conversation by clicking here.
I am delighted to see that this fantastic adaptation is back on the stage and I highly recommend it to fans of Angela Carter’s work as well as theatre lovers more generally.
