The Bureau of Lost Things

Music by Matt Winkworth | Words by Chris Bush

Into the Woods meets Oh! What a Lovely War in this fairytale fable set on the Western Front.  British troops become Arthurian Knights, Baba Yaga is a freedom fighter, while the Musicians of Bremen are an onstage band of refugees.

Featuring a lively score influenced by Eastern European folk music.

First in-progress performance by Rose Bruford students in association with Theatre503, 2015.

For flexible cast, including actor-musicians.  

The Bureau of Lost Things is still in development and we would be happy to hear from anyone interested in the piece.


A story is a story
And the story has begun
A story is the bullet
In the barrel of a gun
