The Theatre of Mistakes and Purdies Farm

Susan Hiller’s Dream Mapping at Purdies Farm.

During the Summer of 1974 the Theatre of Mistakes hosted an arts festival at Purdies Farm, the home of Anthony Howell’s mother Deborah.

Most of the artists, writers and composers contributing to Wallpaper Magazine took part: Anthony McCall, Carolee Schneemann, Andrew Eden, Susan Bonvin, John Welch and many others.

The Theatre of Mistakes created performances at this event – and most of the year the company rehearsed in the old milking-parlour, watched through the window by bemused horses.
