Happy, 118 Tory Street 27th- 31st May 7.30pm

Tread carefully wanderer!

This is a land of revelry,
Of passion and of tricks,
Of Brownies, Bwkas, Boogles, Bogies,
Pixies, Piskies, and Pooks.

Welcome to Hollow Hill!
For five nights only HAPPY becomes the venue for a magical, musical extravaganza unlike any that has come before it.

Join us as an exiled Faerie King and his faithful jabbering servant contemplate their fate.

With design by sculptor and artist John Fraser- Allen of WETA WORKSHOP and musical direction by Erika Grant, Songs of Hollow Hill will ignite your imagination with stories and songs of unworldly beauty.

"Hollow Hill has it all" says writer/devisor Natalie Medlock "think Pan's Labyrinth, but with the joy and mischief of a gypsy carnival."

"This show ignites people's imagination" adds director Sophie Roberts,"it's ballsy, daring, and incredibly funny."

Featuring live 'Faerie' musicians, Songs of Hollow Hill is a livelymeeting of Wellington's brightest new artists. It stars up-and-coming talent Natalie Medlock (Blinkers) and Asalemo Tofete (Angels in America) under the sharp direction of Sophie Roberts (Blinkers, Almost a Bird Theatre Collective).

"Encore…the Wellington theatre scene needs you!" Lynn Freeman, CapitalTimes (Blinkers).
