The Devil’s Violin announce their new production, STOLEN, which will premiere at the Greenwich Theatre before touring the UK from October to November 2017. Full dates below – tickets are on general sale now.
The ensemble will take you on an epic journey, through a dreamlike land where you will encounter a king turned to stone, an old woman living in the claw of a giant cockerel and a glass man filled with wasps.
Daniel Morden’s haunting tale is interwoven with the hypnotic string accompaniment of Sarah Moody and Oliver Wilson-Dickson.
The essence of all cinema, theatre and literature is a gripping tale well told. By weaving traditional stories into an epic narrative the Devil’s Violin return us to that essence. STOLEN is a tale of lost loves, bravery, and above all else, hope.
Generously supported by the Arts Council Lf England and the Arts Council of Wales.

James Haddrell, Artistic Director at the Greenwich Theatre:
“;We are delighted to welcome The Devil’s Violin back to Greenwich Theatre this autumn. Their fusion of storytelling with live musical accompaniment is astonishing – audiences loved their last show which came to Greenwich for a special one-off performance, so we are proud to have programmed the company for a four performance run this season.”
Daniel Morden, The Devil’s Violin:
“The Devil’s Violin perform traditional stories: we aren’t in the business of making social realism. But we don’t make escapism either. The classic quest template seemed appropriate. Something is lost, or broken or stolen, so someone must venture out of their comfort zone in an attempt to restore harmony. The central character is a homebody not a hero. He isn’t in search of glory. He just wants his life back. But to achieve this he must undergo trials and confront his own inner demons.”
