The Forsythe Sisters



Audiences at the Norwegian Church this February will be treated to a theatrical evening of strange stories, ghostly visitations, musical communions and transgressions to the dark side.

Gagglebabble are a new Cardiff-based theatre company, who make work, which is bold, original and dark with live music at its heart. Their particular brand of gig-theatre has seen huge success with their first production The Bloody Ballad, which toured to festivals and venues in the UK and won a total of six awards including Theatre Critics Wales's award for Best Ensemble Performance in 2013. Other productions in development include an adaptation of a collection of Roald Dahl short stories, to be performed in 2016.

The Forsythe Sisters is their second production, which was developed and tried out over Halloween 2013. Due to a great response from the sell-out audiences, the show is being re-vamped and returns with full force to the Norwegian Church in Cardiff Bay for nine shows in February 2015.

From co-writer Lucy Rivers:

“We are really interested in the power and timeless appeal of a good ghost story and wanted to try and create our own ghostly show that could scare and entertain and really engage audiences in an atmospheric and historic setting.”

“I think the idea of ghosts and the paranormal is innately fascinating and seductive for people, even now. The popularity of mediums and ghost walks and tours is proof of how much we want to see and to believe that spirits actually exist, despite little or no reliable evidence. We also all like to go outside our comfort zone sometimes”.

Committed to keeping live music at the centre of their work, this time Gagglebabble have brought in singer and guitarist Dan Lambert who is known for his unique growling, bluesy voice in his bands Johnny Cage and the Voodoo Groove and The Hopeless Sinners. As is tradition, there will be two 10pm 'Friday Fright Night shows on the 6th and 13th of February and a special 'Anti Valentines' show on the 14th where some extra fun will be thrown in.
