Dispatches on the Red Dress is an intimate and courageous new show by twice BBC Radio 2 Folk Award winning songwriter Rowan Rheingans and dramaturg Liam Hurley.
An award-winning hit show at last year’s Edinburgh Fringe Festival, adventurous new writing meets the warmth of a folk gig in this heartfelt and personal one woman show, uniquely weaving immersive storytelling with live fiddle, banjo and original songs taken from Rowan’s brand new genre-melding debut solo album The Lines We Draw Together (The Guardian’s Folk Album of the Month).
Unravelling the joy and pain from a story of her grandmother’s youth in 1940s Germany, Rowan celebrates small acts of resistance and boldly asks a troubling question for our times: can hope for our future be found in the very darkest pockets of our history?
New date: In light of the ongoing COVID-19 crisis and current government guidance, Rowan Rheingans: Dispatches on the Red Dress has been postponed to Friday 5 November 2021. Ticket holders for Monday 9 November 2020 will be contacted directly.
