A gripping tale well told by the alchemists of words and music The Devil’s Violin, Stolen brims with dreamlike images that will haunt you long after the performance ends.

Daniel Morden is one of the World’s leading storytellers – his most recent award being the Hay Festival Medal 2017. With ‘fearsome fiddler’ (BBC Radio 4) Oli Wilson-Dickson ‘a master musician who can make his violin sit up and beg’ (Taplas) and cellist Sarah Moody (MD for Travelling Light Theatre, The Theatre Royal, Bath and several BBC Radio dramas) folk, world music and classical style collide to produce ‘an excellent score…a haunting sound world…always tenderly humane’ (Judith Mackrell The Guardian).
