Sincere, enchanting and full of intoxicating strangeness, A Very Old Man with Enormous Wings is one of the finest short stories by magical-realism maestro Gabriel García Márquez.

On the third day of rain, a man with enormous wings falls down in Pelayo and Elisenda’s garden. What is to be done with him? The local wise woman, parish priest, and citizens of the town all have their own ideas. But as the man’s strange destiny and that of Pelayo and Elisenda’s desperately ill son seem inextricably linked, they decide the best thing to do is to take him in and protect him …

Lose yourself in García Márquez’s magical world, as dynamic student ensemble The Wax House brings the story to life with sea shanties, live soundscapes and a measure of open-eyed wonder.

Haunted by sounds of the countryside and snatches of Death and the Maiden, we follow the dragging steps of Maddy Rooney as she makes her way to and from Boghill railway station. Punctuated by comically absurd, gruesome conversations with various townsfolk, her journey is filled with humour and quiet tra...
