This Land: The Story of Woody Guthrie

Category: Previous Productions, Sensory, Theatre

About

Woody Guthrie is the original folk hero. It was Guthrie who, in the Thirties and Forties, transformed the folk ballad into social protest and observation. Through his work, he paved the way for Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen and a host of other songwriters who have been moved to tell their stories and challenge society with power and passion.

Told in his own words, our theatre production ‘This Land – The Story of Woody Guthrie’ returns to tell the story of his life.

This Land was toured nationally during spring 2007 to schools and venues.

 

This land was also taken to the Edinburgh Fringe 2012. Click here for the reviews.

“Interplay deserve the highest praise for so effectively chronicling the life of a folk hero, capturing every moment of tenderness, tragedy and humour through nothing more than great acting, singing and musicianship.” -Yorkshire Post
