‘A really astonishing piece of work from 1927.’

The Guardian


Welcome to Bayou, part of the city that is feared and loathed.

Wherein lies the infamous Bayou Mansions; a sprawling, stinking, murky tenement block, where the wolf is always at the door. When Agnes Eaves and her daughter arrive late one night, does it signal hope in this hopeless place, or has the real uprising only just begun?

Like a giant graphic novel burst into life, this is a thrilling blend of dark comedy, musical cabaret and silent movie. Seamlessly synchronising live music, performance and storytelling with stunning film and animation.

A witty and wickedly twisted tale from the multiple award-winning company behind Golem, Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea and The Magic Flute.
