Written almost 650 years ago by local poet William Langland, Piers Plowman enters the mind of a wanderer, Will, as he falls asleep in the Malvern Hills, dreams of a "fair field full of folk" and embarks on a quest to find Truth. Fair Field re-imagines Piers Plowman for the twenty-first century through a series of site-responsive performances taking place in the atmospheric basement of Shoreditch Town Hall and evoking the sounds and sights of medieval London. Enter the psychedelic dreamscape of Piers Plowman and explore a world of inequality, political corruption and spiritual crisis that is uncannily like our own. New commissions from artists including Breach Theatre, Annette Brook, Tom Chivers, Steve Ely, Nick Field, Francesca Millican-Slater, The Society of Strange and Ancient Instruments and Ross Sutherland. Co-directed by Russell Bender and Tom Chivers.
