THE rolling hills of south Devon echoed with the sound of howling wolves last week as the young people of Henley’s Acorn Music Theatre Company returned to prowl the stage at Start Point.
Acorn’s production of The Lonesome Wolf And The Fearsome Girl was a tale of wicked wolves and ferocious girls in a performance inspired by the author, Angela Carter.
Locals and tourists alike flocked to Start Farm, courtesy of the Ansell family, to be entertained by the Acorn Music Theatre Company.
The audience, who had dressed for the occasion, were treated to stories of wicked wolves and witches, louche lycanthropes, handsome huntsmen and fearsome, knife-wielding Red Riding Hoods.
Acorn trustee, Sarah Bell, said: “It was a colourful, energetic and darkly humorous performance, interwoven with Acorn’s unique blend of powerfully haunting musical themes. The imaginative set of the Den, the creative lighting and the wonderful, original music (songs which included Katie Moberly’s Colours and Toby Marlow’s Lonesome Wolf Blues and Howling, the latter sung by Annie Moberly), all added to the performance, making it a spectacular, dramatic experience. The weather was perfect — even the full moon shone brightly adding to the atmosphere. The Lonesome Wolf And The Fearsome Girl was a huge success!”
