La Mama Theatre

The Girl As Green As Elderflower

This musical stage adaptation is based on the novel of the same name by multi-award winning, Australian-born Randolph Stow. It revolves around Cris Clare, who returns to his ancestral family in Suffolk, recovering from a mysterious illness. His fevered dreams are filled with the local folklore and soon the line between reality and myth blurs. This multi-layered story touches on xenophobia, misogyny, sexuality and mental illness in the changing UK seasons of 1961. Mostly light-hearted and sentimental, this strange piece is also eerie, fragile and cruel, abounding with youthful characters inhabited by older souls.

Adapted for the stage by Richard Davies from the novel by Randolph Stow
