Epic fantasy The Chronicles of Atom & Luna heads on tour | Sept – Nov 2022

    Epic fantasy tale The Chronicles of Atom & Luna is heading on tour this autumn. The magical children’s adventure from Funnelwick Limb, by poet, writer and broadcaster Murray Lachlan Young (BBC 6 Music), follows young heroes Atom and Luna on a fantastical journey through nature and time. 

    When Atom and Luna, who have been left home alone, are saved from starvation by an unexpected visitor Iffley Sney, it leads to a series of magical events. When Iffley falls terribly ill, only the twins can save him, and on a journey that will change their lives forever, they must head into the forbidden forest to seek out Old Mother Redbeard.  

    Writer, Murray Lachlan Young, comments, 

    “I’m so excited we are going to be bringing Atom  and Luna to life, a project the team and I have been working on since lockdown! It’s a wonderful, epic fairy tale – it’s got heart, it’s got soul, it’s got strange characters and above all  else it takes you on a magical adventure. It’s been such fun imagining and writing the show,  so I can’t wait to see it realised live on stage.”

    This production stars Becca Bindang (Get Happy, UK Tour), Farrell Cox (Ambivalence, All in the Mind Festival), Alex Scott Fairley (Nothello, Coventry Belgrade Theatre) and Fran Burgoyne (Lemons, Lemons, Lemons, Lemons, Lemons, Southwark Playhouse).

    Nina Hajiyianni (Artistic Director, Theatre Porto) directs, with illustrations and design by Bek Palmer (Olivier nominated What the Ladybird Heard, West End and UK tour). Matthew Linley (The Ballad of  Maria Marten, UK tour) is the producer, co-produced by Theatre Porto and Eastern Angles Theatre Company

    Ahead of the tour, audiences can start getting inside the world of Atom and Luna with  innovative free digital content available from Funnelwick Limb’s website. Six audio tales  (performed by Murray, with music by Orbital’s Paul Hartnoll) delve into the world of the show and a unique, playable augmented reality storybook game gives players the chance to enter the forbidden wood themselves and seek out Old Mother Redbeard.  

    The production and digital wrap around has been made possible thanks to funding from Arts Council England using public money raised via the National Lottery.
