Trust no one. Suspect even your own shadow. 

Welcome to the Bayou, a part of the city feared and loathed, wherein lies the infamous Bayou Mansions; a sprawling, stinking tenement block, in which curtain-twitchers and peeping toms live side-by-side, and the wolf is always at the door.

When Agnes Eaves and her daughter arrive late one night, does it signal hope in this hopeless place, or has the real horror only just begun? Like a giant graphic novel burst into life, 1927 invite you on a theatrical journey of startling originality.

Four years after their multi-award winning, critically acclaimed debut Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea, 1927 return with its follow up show The Animals and Children took to the Streets. Seamlessly synchronizing live music, performance and storytelling with stunning films and animation, this wickedly twisted show comes to TOM – The Old Market for a limited season, following a world premiere at Sydney Opera House and sell- out, critically acclaimed seasons in Sydney, Melbourne, London, Perth and Paris.


“This is a perfect alternative show. In fact, it is a perfect show.”  ★ ★ ★ ★ ★  The Financial Times

“A jaw droppingly clever and gloriously subversive parable…1927 conjure a world so complete it feels as if you’ve fallen down a rabbit hole.”  ★ ★ ★ ★ ☆  Guardian

“A mind-blowingly beautiful piece of theatre.” ★ ★ ★ ★ ☆ Time Out London

// About 1927

1927’s inimitable blend of finely crafted animation with pitch perfect, twisted storytelling, live action and music, first seen in their critically acclaimed multi-award winning debut Edinburgh hit Between the Devil and The Deep Blue Sea, brought the company from nowhere to become one of the most talked about young companies of the last 5 years. This, only their second production, sees a continuation of their signature style.

“1927: Their star is on the ascendant and there is nothing quite like them.” The Times
