Based on the book ‘The Faerie Thorn and Other Stories’ by Jane Talbot, Big Telly’s The Faerie Thorn will delight and bewitch Coleraine at the Riverside Theatre on April 21 and 22 through recreations of Talbot’s dark and imaginative and tales, propelling the audience into a world of devilish debts, trysts and trades, broken bargains and unjust trials.

The stories inhabit a vivid and dangerous world controlled by a complex fairy mafia including factions like the memory takers, the time keepers, the bad talkers and trolls, which humans tackle at their peril.

Jane Talbot, author of The Faerie Thorn said: “It’s been a thrilling experience working with Big Telly Theatre Company and seeing my stories come to life in such an imaginative way. I love the way the Big Telly team has skilfully created one cohesive piece of theatre out of three distinct stories. The piece is vibrant, challenging, dark and playful - and really holds the spirit of the original stories.”

Multi-award winning theatre company Big Telly have carved out a reputation over the pas thirsty years as bold, risk-taking theatre makers, and The Faerie Thorn production will be a vibrant, contemporary, physical theatre, incorporating masks, movement and illusion.

The Faerie Thorn will be witty, dark and wickedly comedic dealing with inexorable human tensions in a way that is shocking and yet terrifyingly familiar.
