Forest Fables at Mottistone Manor

CREATIVE DIRECTOR & ILLUSTRATOR

When the pandemic stopped live events in their tracks, we started a company and wrote and designed a sold-out live show to COVID-19 guidelines.

Forest Fables at Mottistone Manor is an immersive promenade piece of theatre, created by NAIADS. We partnered with the National Trust to bring live theatre to the Isle of Wight during Christmas 2020. The sold-out show was one of the only live shows to go ahead in the UK and saw bubbled groups embark on an immersive, theatrical journey through the sprawling rooms of an ancient manor house.

We partnered with video producers, Greengage Ventures, to create a theatrical film version of the show to enable those still sheltering to experience family theatre.
