“…a rackety fairytale shot through with the blues, an insouciant sauciness, and the pain and pleasure involved in managing to survive.” —The Guardian

December 3, 2011 is Berkeley Rep’s night/OUT. The show is followed by a fabulous party for the LGBT community, which is included in the ticket price.
I*n a stunning elemental world of dust, clay and fire here is a red hot story with a brutal edge and a beating heart… The story of what happens when your father accidentally sells you to the Devil.*
Betrayed by her father, our heroine has those ‘cross-road’ blues. She chooses to walk into the wilderness rejecting not only the Devil, but also her home and trusting heart as well. In the wilds she meets a Prince and becomes pregnant, but when he is called to war, her heart breaks as she finds herself at those pesky cross-roads again.
In the cool green of the forest, she brings up her child, and – wonder of wonders – her broken heart grows back. Perhaps this is happily ever after, perhaps there is even more joy to come…
This epic and poetic wondertale is classic Kneehigh stuff. Charting a life from child to adult, you can expect instinctive storytelling, devilish humour and a heady mix of live blues music and devilish humour. The Wild Bride is a grown up, spring bud, dustball of a romance for brave children and adults alike.
