A Bristol Old Vic Young
Company Production
Directed by Miranda Cromwell
Written by Theo Fraser Steele

There will be a free Q&A with the writer, Theo Fraser Steele, and director, Miranda Cromwell, after Talon on Wednesday 8th January, 9.30-10pm.

A man and his wife are cold with wanting, an ambitious doctor prepares to make his mark. Something stirs in the darkness. By beak, claw and feather a prophecy is sung. Soon a child from the wilderness will draw them all together and blow them apart.

A gothic thriller to chill your bones, Talon tears at your deepest desires and asks: If you wish for something enough, can you make it happen by the strength of your wanting?

Fresh from a sell-out run at 2013's Edinburgh Fringe Festival with Pigeon English, the award-winning Bristol Old Vic Young Company premiere Theo Fraser Steele's exciting new script.
