Down on the farm…
Guess what? The gripping sequel to the award-winning War Horse is coming to the Grand Theatre, Blackpool!
New Perspectives Theatre Company presents Michael Morpurgo’s Farm Boy adapted and directed by the brilliant Daniel Buckroyd.
The compelling sequel to the award-winning War Horse is a moving account of the changing face of the English countryside and a beautifully-crafted reminder that stories really can reach out across the generations!
Following critically-acclaimed runs at both the 2010 Edinburgh Festival Fringe and the 2011 Brits Off Broadway Festival in New York, plus a hugely successful UK tour, this magical tale of the bonds linking grandfather to grandson and ultimately both to the land has once more been brought to life by New Perspectives Theatre Company in Farm Boy combining drama, storytelling and original music.
It sometimes felt as though time had stood still on the family farm – swallows nesting in the eaves, the old Fordson Tractor quietly rusting in the back of the barn, Grandpa still tending his chickens – that is, until the summer his grandson finished school and came to stay, and the old man started telling stories of what it had been like on the farm when he was a boy.
Farm boy comes to The Grand this September- if you enjoyed War Horse you will love this magical tale.
