'The Coat explores what happens when two communities, who work side by side and hold everything in common, witness an event from entirely different perspectives. It is a tale for our times, and it is a tale for the generation that follows us' - Pat Winslow, writer.
RCM Masters composer Oliver Vibrans collaborates with award-winning poet Pat Winslow to create an adaptation of this classic folk tale, exploring themes of division and the need for co-operation. This production brings together an ensemble of RCM instrumentalists alongside professional actors and physical theatre performers to create an innovative cross art form performance directed by LAMDA theatre director Nathan Crossan-Smith.
