Performance storytelling by Dominic Kelly, with music by Bridget Marsden and Leif Ottosson.
A boy stands on a lakeshore. Behind him is all he’s ever known. Ahead is a chance for love but a much higher chance of death. He’s had a happy life and a sheltered one. But his father has gambled away everything and the debt cannot be paid in money…
Dominic Kelly, Bridget Marsden & Leif Ottosson, weave together versions of an ancient fairytale from Norway, Scotland, Ireland and India into a playful and gripping musical performance, and ask what the consequences are for the young when older generations fail to make adult decisions.
'A bewitching fusion of storytelling and music that takes theatre right back to its origins.'
