“There were two sisters who will die,
One drowns wet and one drowns dry”
Bow Down is a macabre folk tale of thwarted desire, unnatural betrayal and violent jealousy, where two sisters destroy each over the love of a Suitor.
Originally devised in 1977 by Sir Harrison Birtwistle and Tony Harrison, our new re-imagined production opens tonight at the Brighton Festival before touring to other UK festivals this summer – don’t miss it!
