‘Trestle’s latest merges archetypal folk tale and a seemingly everyday story of modern migration in a clever and beautiful piece of theatre’****
In a world of diverging paths and rocky roads, how do we choose which way to travel?
The Glass Mountain told the story of Olek, Polish baker by day, dreamer by night, who boards a bus for England and finds himself on a much bigger journey than he had bargained for.
This exciting international production weaved together the Polish fable of The Glass Mountain with contemporary stories of migration. Inspired by Eastern European traditions of singing stories and expressed through original music and physical performance, this is a hopeful and heartfelt tale about what it is to journey into the unknown.
