A visual feast of a show for all the family, inspired by a Gabriel Garcia Marquez short story. We invite you to a desert where the winds of misfortune bluster and blow. Meet the dancing daydreamer, a gigantic cruel-hearted Grandmother, a startled Ostrich named Geoffrey and a very rude parrot. The Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama’s puppeteers bring this tragic and extraordinary tale to life in the exquisite house and gardens of Dyffryn.
