Like a graphic novel burst into life, 1927 invites you on a theatrical journey of startling originality. Seamlessly synchronising live music, performance and storytelling with stunning film and animation.

Welcome to the Bayou, a part of the city feared and loathed. In the infamous Bayou Mansions; a sprawling stinking tenement block, 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?

Co-commissioned by Battersea Arts Centre, Malthouse Theatre Melbourne & The Showroom (University of Chichester)

Supported by Corn Exchange Newbury & Early development supported by The Arches & Manipulate Visual Theatre Festival
