The Firebird

This classic Russian tale has it all; wicked brothers, greedy Tsars, the Princess of Inexhaustible Loveliness (you need to meet her), the evil sorcerer Kastchey the Deathless, a flying wolf, and a bird of flaming feathers. Join our hero Ivan as he strives to rescue the Princess from the evil sorcerers clutches. Come on a journey you won’t forget!

Suitable for families.

Come and see Susanna perform this tale at Rochdale literature and ideas festival on 26th October 2013


Of Mines and Men: the new live interpretation performance by Susanna Oldfield and Anna O’Brien, commissioned by the Hepworth Art Gallery, Wakefield.

Of Mines and Men
Two women, from vastly different worlds, collide in this live interpretation piece. One an artist’s muse, living the high life in fashionable Victorian London, another, a pit brow lass, working in the mines in Lancashire. Come and hear for yourself as they unravel their secrets of life, love, tragedy and triumph.

Performance Times:

Saturday 14th September, 11am and 1pm
Sunday 15th September, 11am and 1pm

In the Hepworth Art Gallery, Wakefiled, WF1 5AW

James Tissot, On The Thames, 1876
