Developing The Narrative
Travelling with Thomas is a folk musical in the making, the next exciting project from Morris Offspring’s creator, Laurel Swift. Despite the pandemic, Year Two is in full swing!
Year One explored the feel of Thomas' world, the Fairy Queen's world, and the land between the two. The Travelling with Thomas team are now working with a variety of artists to flesh out the story, bringing Thomas and the other characters' adventures to full-throated life.
In this phase, entitled "Building a Narrative", we are working with four fabulous actors, facilitated by storyteller and theatre artist Debs Newbold. We will drill down into the story’s skeleton as well as widening our gaze beyond its traditional plot points. From these explorations we begin to find the key elements of Thomas' story and create new music and artwork in response.
You can be part of the journey! Alongside opportunities to sit back and enjoy the show, Travelling with Thomas offers unique ways for you to respond live to the experience. This valuable insight and feedback from the audience will inform the next part of the process.
