I Wish I was a Mountain
FRIDAY 2 NOVEMBER 11AM & 2PM
On the day of the famous annual fair, the town of Faldum receives an unexpected visit.
A wanderer offers to grant a wish to anyone who wants one. Before long, the city is transformed. Mansions stand where mud huts once squatted, and beggars ride around in horse drawn carriages. And one man wishes to be turned into a mountain.
Written and performed by former Glastonbury Poetry Slam Champion Toby Thompson, I Wish I Was a Mountain uses rhyme, live music, and just a smattering of metaphysical philosophy to boldly reimagine Herman Hesse’s classic fairytale.
“A wonderful gift for language, a deep sensibility and a penetrating sense of perspective.’ Sir Ken Robinson
