This is a perfect alternative show. In fact, it is a perfect show. ****

The Financial Times

Welcome to the Bayou, a part of the city feared and loathed wherein lies the infamous Bayou Mansions; a sprawling stinking tenement block, where curtain- twitchers and peeping-toms live side by side, and the wolf is always at the door.

When Agnes Eaves and her daughter arrive late one night, does it signal hope in this hopeless place, or has the real horror only just begun?

Seamlessly synchronising live music, performance and storytelling with stunning films and animation, this is the wickedly twisted international hit tale from the multiple award-winning company behind Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea.

Like a giant novel bursting into life, 1927 invite you on a theatrical journey of startling originality.

It’s a rare treat for a theatre lover to discover a show that’s quite like anything she’s experienced before and adore it unreservedly from the start. Such was the glorious sensation that company 1927 gave me, with its outstanding blend of animation, original music and quirky storytelling in 70 nigh on perfect minutes… A huge hit beckons *****

The Evening Standard

The macabre, musically ingenious and graphically glorious company called 1927… anyone interested in the theatre should see this company now.
