New Romanian story in London

Called Father Nandru & The Wolves, the new show at Wilton’s (East London) is based on a Romanian true story, features larger than life puppetry, dream like design and live Gypsy music.

It’s been written by a hugely talented writer and Director, Julian Garner, who visited Breb, Viscri and the Roma communities around Targu Mures, Romania. The story follows a village who are forced to tear down their much loved church by the Ceaucescu regime. Unknown to the authorities they in fact buried it, and later resurrected it.

This production is based on a true story from Romania where the Ceausescu regime laid plans for the destruction of thousands of villages to maximize land for agricultural production. Wilton’s Music Hall has lived with the threat of closure and collapse for many years and this show resonates deeply with its own story. This will be the last full production that Wilton’s will present for over a year as building work (and a smaller artistic programme) will be taking place from May, allowing us to fully repair this historic site. We invite you to join us for a great story of love, hope and survival.
