Washington Irving's THE LEGEND OF SLEEPY HOLLOW BY Philip Meeks Directed by Jake Smith Welcome to Sleepy Hollow. Population 436. May you never leave! With Hallowmas celebrations fast approaching, the residents of Sleepy Hollow spin tall tales of legends and unsightly entities. But who can tell truth from nightmare? Ichabod Crane enters an eerie world of secrets and unsettling tradition as he arrives in Sleepy Hollow to become the town teacher. While quickly finding friendship with the town patriarch and his spirited daughter, his presence is not wholly welcome. But not all is as it seems, for Ichabod Crane harbours his own dark secret. He is not in Sleepy Hollow by chance. When disturbing events overwhelm the small town, he finds himself swept up in a dangerous mystery which leaves him doubting his own sanity. Coronation Street legends Wendi Peters and Bill Ward lead an incredible ensemble in this thrilling new adaptation. Transforming the American Dream into the American Gothic, Sleepy Hollow unleashes one of the most terrifying monsters from the horror canon – the Headless Horseman. Taking on the role of Ichabod Crane is Sam Jackson (Skins, E4; Beautiful Thing, National Tour) alongside Rose Quentin (York Witches Society, MSR Media), Lewis Cope (Vera, ITV; Witness for the Prosecution, London County Hall) and Tommy Sim'aan (As You Like It, Sam Wanamaker Playhouse; Doctors, BBC). www.tiltedwigproductions.com Twitter: @tiltedwiguk Insta: @TiltedWig Facebook Tilted Wig Productions.
