A compelling and visceral re-imagining of E.T.A. Hoffmans gothic story Sandman.

When Nathaniel, a student, is visited by a mysterious dread figure from the past and falls in love with a woman, who isn't all she seems, nobody can prevent his life from spiralling out of control. Haunted by terrifying childhood memories, Nathaniel is convinced that the Sandman is back to take his eyes and destroy his life.

This intense and immersive performance fuses high-energy storytelling, expressive physicality and puppetry to take you into a thrilling nightmare world.

Developed with support from The Place, and first presented as part of Stage Write, this piece is a collaboration with playwright/director Mike Carter and features design by spatial designer Dawn Hesketh-Joslin.

Adie has toured the work and developed it significantly since it was last seen at The Place and you are encouraged to come and see it again.
