I Wish I Was A Mountain
On the day of the famous annual fair, the town of Faldum receives an unexpected visit. A wanderer offers to grant a wish to anyone who wants one. Before long, the city is transformed. Mansions stand where mud huts once squatted, and beggars ride around in horse drawn carriages. And one man wishes to be turned into a mountain.
Based on Faldum – A fairy tale by Hermann Hesse
Written and performed by former Glastonbury Poetry Slam Champion Toby Thompson, I Wish I was a Mountain uses rhyme, live music, and just a smattering of metaphysical philosophy to boldly reimagine Hermann Hesse's classic fairy-tale.
Do we really need the things that we need? What do mountains feel? How did time begin?
“Stunning … A profound show that reveals Thompson to be a star in the making … few shows have been so entrancing” The Guardian
