Paying the Piper is a devised piece of multimedia theatre exploring the darker side folk stories and fairy tales that are normal reserved for children. When a small town in the year 1346 becomes consumed by a plague of rats its inhabitants have no idea that they are bringing with them one of the most devastating pandemics in human history. With the town on the edge of collapse, they will turn to the help of a stranger who will become remembered as hero to some and villain to others.
"Paying the Piper shows that imagination and creativity have no limits when Lopresti uses small things to show big, significant moments" - Karolina Latka (TheatreBath)
"I found the subversion of the concept of gore the most fascinating, and everybody thoroughly enjoyed the humour contained within these moments... which left one girl seated in front of me with her hand held to her face in shock, then laughing freely soon after" - Leo Bugden ***** (Bath Echo)
