The Mare's Tale: world premiere tour

The Mares Tale1
Mark is thrilled to present the world premiere tour of The Mare’s Tale, with the Berkeley Ensemble this spring. Inspired by a series of drawings by Clive Hicks-Jenkins on the theme of the Mari Lwyd, one of the oldest Welsh midwinter traditions, this work for actor and chamber ensemble sets a new text from poet Damian Walford Davies.

The tour will feature actor
Eric Roberts in the narrator’s role and will be conducted by Chloe van Soeterstede for performances in Cardiff, London and Glasgow this spring.

Tickets and further information

The Berkeley Ensemble’s performances of
The Mare’s Tale are supported by PRS Foundation’s Beyond Borders, a co-commissioning and touring programme run in partnership with Creative Scotland, Arts Council of Wales, Arts Council of Northern Ireland / An Chomhairle Ealaion.
