Burn the Curtain

The Company of Wolves

Based on stories by Angela Carter

A promenade theatre adventure for walkers and runners

Adapted by Shiona Morton

‘One beast, and only one, howls in the woods at night.’

A young girl puts on her red cloak and heads into the forest, watched by unseen eyes. She begins to run, and so the hunt begins. Run or walk with us, and help to sniff out those who are hairy on the inside…

Burn the Curtain (The Adventures of Don Quixote by Bicycle, Brighton Festival 2013) turns Angela Carter’s macabre imagination into a spine-tingling outdoor experience. The tale unfolds as you progress along the route, which will be between two and five miles long, depending on which path you take.

You can choose to be fleet of foot or eagle-eyed; to pick up the pace or tread carefully. But stray from the path for one instant, and the wolves will eat you.

Choose to be a Runner or a Walker and remember that some of the action will take place in the dark, so please bring a torch or head torch. Please wear suitable footwear and dress appropriately for the weather. Please note this event is not wheelchair accessible.

‘…an exhilarating romp through nature that captures the essence of Angela Carter’s darkly alluring original...’ Exeunt Magazine
