AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Alone in the museum, in the dark, Marion unravels a ball of string so Michael can venture into a mystery. In recent weeks, strange stirrings have haunted the ancient relics and rumours of a monster abound. Michael finds his way back to her and to an impossible situation.

Marion flees and finds herself the prim centre of an over-sexed septuagenarian art group at a seaside resort. Here, Marion is infuriated by Mark, a wayward sommelier with an eye for the ladies, determined to disrupt her lessons and her life.

Whimsical, sensual and charmingly humorous, 'The Bull, the Moon and the Coronet of Stars' is a love story of mythic proportions. It will lure you into an orgy of antiquity, cupcakes and beachside frivolity.

Award-winning playwright Van Badham is joined by Griffin Associate Director Lee Lewis ('Silent Disco', 'A Hoax') for this delightfully debaucherous fairytale for adults.
