The Ancient Mariner
by S. T. Coleridge
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.

The puppet master is always dusted with a little darkness.
He is the intermediary between us, his audience, the living,
and they, the dolls, the undead, who cannot live at all,
who cannot speak or weep, yet who still project those
signals of signification we instantly recognize as language.

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.
