On the day of the famous annual fair, the town of Faldum receives an unexpected visitor who offers to grant anyone’s wish. Before long, mansions stand where mud huts once squatted, beggars ride around in horse drawn carriages, and one man wishes to be turned into a mountain.
Written and performed by former Glastonbury Poetry Slam Champion Toby Thompson, I Wish I was a Mountain uses rhyme, live music, and just a smattering of metaphysical philosophy to boldly reimagine Herman Hesse’s classic fairytale. Do we really need the things that we need? What do mountains feel? How did time begin?
