A winter’s saga of courage and love
By Thomas Crowe; directed by Gavin Stride & Kevin Dyer.
An evening of story and song from the lands of the far, far north.
Yørgjin Oxo is a Marshlander who can tell a person by the sound of their squelch and is unlike any hero we might actually need. Thomas Crowe’s script fizzes with humour, larger than life characters and explores a place quite unlike our own. Join us for a tale of soggy nights, brave mice and the joys of being alive.
Yørgjin Oxo toured to rural venues in England, Scotland and Wales in early 2017, and will tour again in Spring 2018.
