“For the first time in my life, everything is silent”
With high octane musical numbers and a virtuoso solo performance, The Legends of Them is a unique theatrical experience brought to you by connoisseurs of experimental entertainment, Hackney Showroom.
Darkness descends at the Pink House in Tiruvannamalai, India. As the storm cracks through the windows, Lorna’s memories pierce their way through the silence. The legends of her life come to guide her her mother Euphemia, her sister Cherry, her brother Mooji and her ancestor, Nanny of the Maroons. But will Lorna find the strength to face her demons? Come, let our observer take your hand, as she leads us on an epic voyage of discovery.
