Feral

A new Gypsy-Folk musical drama by award-winning playwright John Foster, director Charmaine K Parkin, singer-songwriter Hui Hue and harpist Caolan Walpot.

Exploring racism, community, the gypsy experience and the conflict between logic and intuition, this compelling one-woman show follows the story of eighteen-year-old Simone as she is gripped by a magnetic and overwhelming wanderlust.

Forced by powerful and disturbing impulses to abandon her family and travel in the open, Simone runs away from home and ventures into the wilds of the Dorset landscape.

Living rough and stealing money and food to survive, Simone weaves an erratic trail, moving across the contours of the land and meeting an ensemble of characters - some supportive, others antagonistic and even threatening. But her luck cannot hold forever and the police are soon in pursuit, along with her past.

We want to encourage more people to come and see shows at Forest Arts, more often. Pay What You Decide not only allows you to pay what you can afford, rather than a fixed ticket price, but also removes the financial risk of buying a ticket for a show in advance without knowing whether you are going to enjoy it or not.

Tickets will be available to book in advance as usual, but there is no obligation for you to pay until after you have seen the show. You can then decide on a price which you think is suitable based on your experience, which means if you haven’t enjoyed it at all, you don’t have to pay anything.

All money collected will help us pay the artists who have performed, and we therefore hope you will give generously.

Please ensure you have arrived and collected your tickets 15 minutes before the show starts in order to secure your seats. At the end of the show, you can decide what to pay by leaving a cash donation in the envelope on your seat.
