Father Nandru & The Wolves
A lost village, star-crossed lovers, mysterious wolves and the extraordinary story of a community trying to save what is most precious to them before it is lost forever.
Five hundred years ago, founding fathers built a log church in a small village deep in the heart of Transylvania where, 400 years on, the villagers still worship. When Eveline, the lop-faced daughter of a leading family, elopes with Vadim, the crippled son of a Roma dancing clan, the little village is sent into a frenzy. Only the priest, Father Nandru, is aware that just around the corner a far more dangerous threat is lurking, and that this community must put their differences aside if anything is to survive into the future.
Written especially for Wilton’s Music Hall by award-winning playwright Julian Garner and designed by Hanne Horte around the eccentricities of this unique and beautiful building, Father Nandru & The Wolves is a captivating folk tale, based on a true Romanian story and narrated in verse. Experience dream-like design, larger than life puppetry and some impressive feats of engineering. This will be Wilton’s last full scale production before going under wraps & The Chrysalis Club emerges.
Conjuring up the spirit of village life
Wilton’s is a beautiful building to explore, take your time to look around and experience some Transylvanian magic before and after the show. Conjuring up the spirit of village life throughout the entire building, Eastern European food and drink will be on sale, courtesy of Zakuski London with post-show live Gypsy bands every Friday and Saturday.
