Welcome to the Bayou, a part of the city feared and loathed wherein lies the infamous Bayou Mansions; a sprawling stinking tenement block, where 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 amongst the cockroaches, crime and corruption, does it signal hope in this hopeless place, or has the real horror only just begun?
Using their trademark macabre cabaret style this wickedly twisted new show from the multiple award-winning company behind the 2008 Festival hit Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea, has been likened to a mixture of Fritz Lang, Charles Dickens and Tim Burton. Seamlessly synchronizing live music and performance with exquisite film and animation, 1927 brings this dystopian delight to Dublin as part of an extensive world tour.
