    About

    International company Theatre Témoin wowed us with The Fantasist, as part of Bristol Festival of Puppetry. Now we present their critically-acclaimed new play; a beautiful, horrifying and unforgettable story that needs to be told.

    “The ache for home lives in all of us, the safe place where we can go as we are and not be questioned” Maya Angelou

    As a boy, Jack lived in a world of monsters and invisible guardians, as he fought to protect the people he loved. Now grown, his life on the streets of London is less fantastical. But when a ghost from his past turns up, Jack must harness the power of forgotten myths to defeat her.

    After an acclaimed sell-out run at the Edinburgh Fringe, we are delighted to bring The Marked to Bristol. Spinning together mask, puppetry and physical theatre it navigates a haunting, mystical wonderland inspired by real-life stories of homelessness.
