North Country Theatre presents The Wish House.
Based on a short story by Rudyard Kipling
Adapted by Nobby Dimon
Directed by Vivienne Garnett
A sinister story of superstition sacrifice and dirty laundry
Grace Ashcroft might be seen by some as a poor old lady, “a dear old soul” but the tale she tells of her younger days as a lusty farm girl and the strange sacrifice she made to keep “her” man is by turns hilarious and chilling. Cold Comfort Farm meets Chaucer’s Wife of Bath meets A Picture of Dorian Gray in this tongue-in-cheek version of Kipling’s story of obsessive love.
This comedy of rural superstition and urban myth is brought to the stage by the company celebrating their 20th anniversary year whose adaptations have ranged from the hilarious The 39 Steps to the scary The Rocking Horse Winner, and most recently the poetic and thought-provoking The Gift of Stones.
