Vault Festival 2016: Greywing House
An original gothic tale delving into deep dark waters
London's biggest arts festival is returning: make your way underground for six weeks of creativity, innovation and chaos at Vault Festival. With more than 100 different shows spread across eight incredible venues, you're not going to find anything else like it above or below ground any time soon. The waves are calm, but somewhere a bell tolls far out to sea... Greywing House sits precariously on the coast keeping watch over a cruel and tumultuous ocean. Miss Amelia has prepared your room, and awaits your arrival to introduce guests both past and present. Breakfast is unfortunately no longer provided as one can never be entirely certain of the time. A few simple rules: no smoking, no pets or animals (excepting, of course, Mr Thurston up the stairs) and no chanting of evocations in communal areas. Award-winning performer Mary Beth Morossa returns with her second solo show, in which she intertwines dark storytelling, poetry and cabaret. Greywing House proudly features original music by Daniel Cross (of Little Death Machine), studies themes of isolation and loss through a classically gothic lens, and is sure to carry you out into deep, dark waters. Show takes place in the Locker space. Running time is approx 60 minutes.
"A vibrant, varied programme…a brilliant place to spot new talent.”
