The Ancient Mariner
by S. T. Coleridge
September 3, 9 & 10, 16 & 17, 23 & 24, 30
All at 7.30pm
October 1 at 7.30pm
The Ancient Mariner is in atmosphere both super
natural and romantic. Its story is simple, yet touched
with a primitive fear that rises ever and again to
haunt us. By shooting the albatross, the Mariner
sinned against nature and thereby cut himself off
from God and his fellow men.
Only when he takes an interest in the sea serpents,
the lowest of all creatures, does he heal the breach
and cast off the spell of isolation and loneliness.
The mystical bond that links nature, man and God
has been used in The Ancient Mariner as the
central theme of wonder and romance.
Suitable for adults.

"Puppetry is a form of ecstasy, just as music
is. It is caused by an overflow of muscle-
power and brain-activity and by an urgent
happiness that can’t be held back, and has
to manifest itself."

After the summer tour the barge needs to be
taken out of the water for maintenance. This is an
expensive procedure and we need your help. The
project is seeking help through crowd funding and we
ask you to pledge any amount starting from £2.00.
We hope to reach our target by the 9th October 2016.
