Lemuel Gulliver sails away to a world of strange islands and even stranger creatures – from the tiny inhabitants of Lilliput, to the giants of Brobdingnag, and the mysterious Houyhnhnms – in what turns into an epic adventure of survival, unexpected friendship and in the end, self-discovery.
Gulliver’s fantastical imaginings are vividly brought to life using video camera, intricate table-top sets and projection alongside live performance. This playful, funny and highly inventive show uses Swift’s biting satire to explore reality and escapism, home and family, and the power of stories to transform our view of the world.
Jaz Woodcock-Stewart directs Leah Brotherhead, Mae Munuo, Sam Swann and Jacoba Williams in Lulu Raczka’s radical re-imagining of Jonathan Swift’s surreal masterpiece, Gulliver’s Travels for all the family this Easter.
Raczka is a winner of the Sunday Times Young Playwriting Award and Company Director of Barrel Organ Theatre.
Jaz Woodcock-Stewart was a finalist for the RTST Sir Peter Hall Director Award 2018 and finalist for the JMK Award in 2016.
