Vision by The Telling
Leading actor of the stage and screen Teresa Banham (Royal Shakespeare Company, The Crown) is set to join the critically acclaimed music and theatre company The Telling to tour the “mesmerising” (The Guardian) show Vision by acclaimed playwright/singer Clare Norburn and BAFTA-nominated director Nicholas Renton (Mrs Gaskells’ Wives & Daughters, Lewis, Musketeers).
Vision is an imagined testimony of the extraordinary medieval abbess, Hildegard of Bingen. The show aims to give an insight into the painful and visceral visionary experiences Hildegard suffered throughout her life, covering some of the core emotional moments. She re-experiences meaningful episodes from her past, alongside her haunting and distinctive chant performed live by two singers and a harpist.
