A wanderer, Will, walks into the hills in search of Truth. Falling into a vision, he witnesses the world spread out before him as a 'fair field full of folk'...
Inspired by the fourteenth century epic poem Piers Plowman, Fair Field is a new co-commission by award-winning arts company Penned in the Margins that explores the issues that troubled the medieval mind: from disability to labour reform, from religious tension to financial excess.
Follow in Will's footsteps as he navigates a surreal landscape that flickers in and out of focus. Encounter a cast of incredible characters - from Reason and Conscience to a binge-drinking Gluttony and the virtuous Piers the Plowman - and discover what it will take to save your soul.
This extraordinary journey will be captured across one weekend in London through theatrical performances and live music. Artists to include: Breach Theatre, Ross Sutherland, Francesca Millican-Slater, Nick Field and The Society of Strange and Ancient Instruments.
Running time: 60mins
