Venue, Timing and Cost
On May 16th and 17th, Voices Across Time (VaT) invite you to their NEW family-friendly musical that will take you on a tale into the depths of Adderbury’s history, unwinding an age-old mystery that has defined the community from the 1880’s to this very day.
"A Clockwinder’s Tale sees the sleepy village of Adderbury punctuated by the sudden arrival of a city journalist hell-bent on unearthing the 200 year mystery of ‘The Vanishing Woman’. However, the announcement of their shock nomination in the ‘Village of the Year’ award overshadows her efforts and she is ignored by all, except for two inquisitive village children. With the help of these children the story of Adderbury’s Clockwinder slowly unravels where lost secrets, uncomfortable truths and forbidden loves start to be exposed. Yet, underneath these seeming deceits lies something more magical that has united the community of Adderbury for the past two hundred years and is still heard today…"
Commissioned by Friends of St Mary’s Adderbury (FOSMA), A Clockwinder’s Tale will be Voices Across Time’s second original work for FOSMA following on from their sellout 2017 show, ‘Christmas Across Time’, which has since gone on to be released as an extended radio series by Ninth Wave Audio Productions.
Paying homage to such a significant building, A Clockwinder’s Tale has been inspired by Adderbury church’s gargoyles, history and especially its Carillon: a life-size music box whose daily tune represents a different aspect of village life.
A Clockwinder’s Tale will be performed at St. Mary’s Church, Adderbury on Friday 17th May 7:30pm and Saturday 18th May 7:30 as well as a Community Matinee Performance at 2:30pm, Saturday 18th May. This Community Matinee Performance is designed to provide a more relaxed and accessible environment for younger and older audiences and will feature an educational Q&A session after the show with a chance to meet the cast and find out about the development behind A Clockwinder’s Tale as well as musical and theatre life.
