WASHINGTON IRVING’S
The Legend of Sleepy Hollow

BY PHILIP MEEKS

DIRECTED BY JAKE SMITH

“There was a contagion in the very air...”

Sleepy Hollow is an ancient place with a bloody history.

A town full of deadly secrets.

A town that will stop at nothing to keep itself safe.

When Ichabod Crane becomes the teacher in Sleepy Hollow, he arrives with a sense of wonderment. Catching the eye of wealthy heiress Katrina Von Tassel he decides she’s the woman he’s going to marry come what may. What he doesn’t realise is that he is about to unleash the very devil himself - the Headless Horseman, a creature doomed for eternity to seek a terrifying revenge.

Nothing explores the dark heart of American Gothic better than this classic tale of love, revenge and bone chilling evil.

Brought to the stage in this exhilarating new telling. This fully ensemble staging, packed with tricks and thrills, will guarantee you’re glad to be sat in a theatre again!

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for The Legend of Sleepy Hollow are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment. All information (whether in text or photographs) is given in good faith but should not be relied upon as being a statement of representation or fact.
