NURSERY rhymes often conjure images of innocence and purity, as opposed to the horrors that lie waiting for us outside the realms of Mary Had A Little Lamb. Horrors that really are quite contrary.
Twisted Theatre bring us a fresh and innovative act in the form of Death And Treason, Rhyme And Reason, a musical act that explores the darkness hidden amid the innocuous world of nursery rhymes.
This talented band combine orchestral elements with spine-tingling harmonies to leave you seeing Jack and Jill in a whole new light.
Nuala Honan's sublime vocals, from tender balladry to goosebump inducing soul, lead you through the show.
Nuala is joined by Elizabeth Westcott and Hannah Martin on violins, with Bristol's Jessica Macdonald and Robbie Burgess completing the line-up on cello, percussion, and vibraphone.
