the wonderful and Spun Glass Theatre present

Nevergreen

Music by Georgina Lloyd-Owen, Luc Wilkinson and Eloïse Poulton, Text by Gus Mitchell

Directed by Eloïse Poulton

“Man is part of nature: his war against nature is a war against himself.”

Nevergreen tells the astonishing untold story of Rachel Carson: trailblazing scientist, writer of the epoch-making Silent Spring and reluctant pioneer of the environmental movement. Overcoming poverty and prejudice, Carson combined scientific knowledge with imaginative power, unfolding the wonder of nature to millions. She risked everything to reveal the truth about the impending poisoning of our world and its creatures – including us.

Following their ‘beautifully filmed ★★★★’ (The Stage) and ‘somehow both ethereal and alarming – and entirely original ★★★★’ (The Guardian) film, new, interdisciplinary collective the wonderful debut their first stage show. Nevergreen fuses multimedia invention with poetic power and audacious storytelling, including BSL interpretation. It is urgent theatre, full of wonder, terror, and hope.
