Who was this Wildman? Devil, merman, sea spirit? The legend of Orford says he was captured at sea and incarcerated in the Castle where he was hung upside down in an attempt to make him speak. Not only would he not oblige but to the horror of the towns people he showed no respect for Christianity when taken to Orford Church. After six months he finally escaped and found his way back to the sea and disappeared for ever. Or did he? In this tale the Wildman’s presence is still very much alive… Performed by actor Martin Bonger, with music by Sylvia Hallett, featuring the Wonderful Beast Singers and directed by Alys Kihl.

For adults and 10+.
