Letters From Egypt
LETTERS FROM EGYPT
BY MARK CROASDALE
Commissioned by Trust New Art, National Trust
Supported by Waterside Arts Centre, Creative Industries Trafford
A new immersive play based on the true story of Thomas Legh (1792-1857), and his journey down the River Nile, Egypt.
Three performers 'take over' the glorious Lyme Park estate in Disley, Cheshire.
Thomas' siblings receive letters which recount his adventures - all delivered by a young postal worker, blowing a bugle and running around on a hobbyhorse named Ned.
