    GENGHIS KHAN - Child of the Blue Wolf
    by David 'Iddy' Wheatley
    directed by Bill Compton

    Period 1204 - 1227: "According to legend we were descended from the mating of a Blue Wolf and a White Hind, the ruthless and the gentle. Never was that inheritance more surely demonstrated in one man, than it was in him."

    David Wheatley's carefully researched epic tells the 800 years old story of the Mongol warrior who welded a group of warring tribes into a spiteful army that killed, pillaged, raped, destroyed and conquered on its way to creating the largest empire the world has ever known.

    Genghis Khan had its World Premiere in 1994 when it was performed by YAT at the Hampton Court Theatre under the direction of David Lewsey.

    Following on from our very successful production at the Edinburgh Fringe last year, this production will be performed at the Arthur Cotterell Theatre (ACT) at Kingston College as part of the International Youth Arts Festival.
