A Weaver's Thread 
by Sam Chittenden

A stage; a loom; three actors.

Using storytelling, music and choreographed movement, A Weaver’s Thread tells the tale of Kitty, an 18th-century cottage weaver living in the hills of West Yorkshire.  Kitty endures the rise of industrialisation and loses her lover to the Luddite rebellion.  

Lyrically and visually powerful, A Weaver’s Thread invites you to step back in time, into the world of the home-weaver, into Yorkshire’s past.
