Federico Fellini's La Strada (the road) is one of the true masterpieces of modern cinema, winning the Academy Award in 1957 for the movie starring Anthony Quinn.
The story of wide-eyed Gelsomina, who is sold by her penniless mother to Zampano, a travelling sideshow strongman, unfolds as they journey through the Italian countryside performing for their keep. Their perilous road trip leads them to a ragtag travelling circus where they meet Il Matto the tightrope walker who rekindles Gelsomina's spirit with a new found confidence.
This visually stunning new stage adaptation will be directed by Bristol's own Olivier award-nominee Sally Cookson (Jane Eyre). Boasting a beautiful score from Benji Bower and design by Katie Sykes, Fellini's profoundly impassioned and deeply involving story will be told by a multi-talented cast to create a theatrical experience that will stimulate the senses, fire emotions and stir the soul.
