Another Winter's Tale

In the darkest of winters comes the brightest of tales...

The storm outside gets ever louder. Two strangers are trapped, not able to move on, but unable to stay.

Outside, a presence moves closer.

Inside, they share the tales of distant times and faraway lands. Waiting...

Who are they, what’s their story?

Friends, innocents, showmen, or something a little more intriguing?

A new theatre show, rich in original music, composed and performed by award-winning composer, Alastair Collingwood.


It is a journey through the shortest days, before the new life of Spring drawing  upon tales of deepest winter from Japan, the fozen north lands,  across Europe, as well as those from nearer to home.


It includes shadow puppets, hand puppets and a Kamishibai, the traditional Japanese street theatre. The stories and songs could not be more diverse: from the joyful to the dark, the new and the familiar, all performed by the company of travelling strangers.

The show is flexibly designed and suitable for small theatres, arts and community centres and even pubs. It tours with its own sound and light systems. 

After a hughly successful tour in the winter of 2021, the show returns from November 2022. Venues please use this link here for more information
