The Lost Library of Spitalfields Market: A Magical Tale Unveiled

Written and directed by the talented Oli Savage, “The Lost Library of Spitalfields Market” unfolds a heartwarming narrative. The story revolves around Isla, portrayed by Ronay Poole, a young girl on a quest to find the perfect Christmas present for her mother. In a serendipitous turn of events, Isla stumbles upon a hidden library concealed within the depths of Spitalfields Market. This library is unlike any other, as it harbors stories not within books, but within everyday objects that have been cast aside and forgotten.

As the audience follows Isla on her journey, they are immersed in the tales these objects hold. Through this enchanting narrative, Isla discovers that in the bustling city of London, connections can emerge from the most unexpected places. “The Lost Library of Spitalfields Market” is a show that transcends age barriers, offering a unique Christmas experience that explores themes of family, loss, magic, and the unbreakable bonds that unite us all.

Jason Dervin, General Manager of The Spitalfields Estate, expressed his enthusiasm for this unique collaboration, saying, “Innovation, creativity, and nurturing our community are some of Spitalfields’ key pillars, so The Greenhouse Theatre joining our collective for the festive season is very special. Their ethos and work they’ve done so far is inspiring, and Spitalfields is proud to support them. ‘The Lost Library of Spitalfields Market’ is a beautiful story, and I encourage booking your tickets now before it’s too late.”

Oli Savage, the Artistic Director of The Greenhouse Theatre, shared his excitement about the project, stating, “It’s so exciting to be partnering with Spitalfields to deliver a brand new Christmas project. Right in the heart of probably the most iconic market in London, we get to explore all the stories that make this amazing city so unique, and all of the cultures that melt together in a place like Spitalfields. You just don’t get that kind of creative opportunity in a traditional theatre space. We’re looking forward to creating a truly unique Christmas experience and to helping people have a more eco-friendly festive period.”
