A Dander Through Narnia

With Robert Campbell

Whether you’re young, or auld, or somewhere in between join us for, A Dander Through Narnia. This new production by Robert Campbell pays homage to the mystical world of Narnia, created by Northern Irish author C.S. Lewis.
The production weaves together monologues, readings from the books, and original poetry, accompanied by sumptuous bespoke illustrations of characters from the world of Narnia created by the author to accompany the event. The rendition includes: ‘Mere than a Wardrobe’, ‘A Dour Hero, ‘To Another Mouse’, and ‘the Death of the Dryad’. Much of the poetry and some of the spoken word uses the hamely tongue of Ulster Scots, but don’t fret yourself for all will be explained as we take our journey through the magical world of Narnia.
