Legend of Sleepy Hollow At New Theatre

, / 979

Following a hugely successful UK tour in 2021, The Legend of Sleepy Hollow comes to the New Theatre in Cardiff from 24th to 29th January (assuming no Welsh Government lockdowns). 

Washington Irving’s classic tale has been given new life by acclaimed playwright Philip Meeks (Murder, Margaret and Me; Harpy) who wields the horror genre to reflect on the lingering appeal of fables, storytelling and monsters.  The ghoulish production revitalises the classic text to leave audiences simmering with anticipation.  Welcome to Sleepy Hollow.

Stars of the stage and screen, Wendi Peters (Big! The Musical; Coronation Street) and Bill Ward (Everybody’s Talking About Jamie; Emmerdale) lead on the stage, alongside Sam Jackson (Skins, E4; Beautiful Thing, National Tour), Rose Quentin (York Witches Society, MSR Media), Lewis Cope (Vera, ITV; Witness for the Prosecution, London County Hall) and Jon Paul Rowden (The Government Inspector, Newcastle Theatre Royal; Twelfth Night, UK tour with The Lord Chamberlain’s Men).

This production has allowed an incredible ensemble of actors to viscerally and inventively bring the Hollow to life.

“We look forward to transporting the audience through a quest of logic and illusion, creating fear and defying expectation.”
