Sigrún’s Fire is a new musical set in Iceland
…a land where the planet is still forming. Ice. Volcanoes. Lava. Tectonic plates tearing at each other beneath our
feet. And on this violent and shifting land lives a small community who are themselves about to erupt. Faith. Love. Jealousy.
Passion. Sex. The fight to survive. Sigrún’s Fire is the story of how we, and the planet, create and destroy
Sigrún’s Fire began life as the devised work
Hagridden, performed by students on the MA Music Theatre course at the Central School of Speech and Drama in 2009. These photos
are of that production.
Book and lyrics are by Stephen Clark (Martin Guerre,
Zorro & Love Story);
music by Paul Barker
Sigrún’s Fire was performed by students
