“There once was a storm, and in that storm, there was a boy…”
One of the country’s most exciting new talents in theatre for young people, Ellen Havard, brings the highly acclaimed Hurricane Boy to the egg next month.
A blustery boy lives alone in the woods, each day rebuilding his house out of anything he can find after the overnight storms. One day, a girl appears and brings him through the gales and the rain. Together they share a summer of blue skies and warm sun, but when the hurricane takes her away again, how will the boy find his way on his own…?
This uplifting tale of chaos and calm premiered to sell-out audiences at the Oxford Playhouse’s Burton Taylor Studio in April last year, and now comes to Bath as part of a national tour.
Ellen Havard is a young, promising theatre director, currently Associate Director with Propellor and a Supported Artist at Pegasus Theatre, and recently worked on the National Theatre and Bristol Old Vic’s co-production of Jane Eyre as Staff Director.
