First look images have been released for Lulu Raczka’s radical re-imagining of Jonathan Swift’s Gulliver’s Travels for all the family at The Unicorn Theatre this Easter.
Jaz Woodcock-Stewart directs Leah Brotherhead (Netflix’s Bridgerton/ITV’s Zomboat), Mae Munuo (the Unicorn’s The Bolds/ Complicite’s I’ll Take You to Mrs Cole), Sam Swann (Skellig/ITV’s Mr Selfridge) and Jacoba Williams (Globe’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream/ VAULT Festival When The Sea Swallows Us Whole) in
Lemuel Gulliver desperately wants to escape her home life. So she escapes to a world of strange islands and even stranger creatures – from the tiny inhabitants of Lilliput, to the giants of Brobdingnag, and the mysterious and wise Houyhnhnms – and embarks on an epic adventure of survival, unexpected friendship and self-discovery.
Gulliver’s fantastical imaginings are vividly brought to life using video cameras, intricate table-top sets and projection alongside live performance in this playful, funny and highly inventive show that uses Swift’s biting satire to view our own world from a very different angle.
