Song of Riots
Written by Lucy Maycock
Music by Maria Sendow
Directed by Christopher Sivertsen & Lucy Maycock
Opening this Spring
This is a story for you, my son
A song for you to learn to sing
The story of kingdoms lost then won
And here is where we must begin
Two boys. A prince from a fairy tale – the only child of a King and a Queen. A kid from the inner city – the only son of Polish immigrants. Both boys need to leave home. Both are out in the night. Both are looking to find golden opportunities. When they meet, a riot breaks out.
With woods, wildmen, the fairytale Iron Hans and the words of William Blake, Song of Riots explores how boys cross the bridge from childhood to maturity and what happens if they fail to make that journey.
Who are these wild boys, running loose in our cities
