A Year and a Day by Christina Reid

Directed by Andie Holborn

A travelling Storyteller and A Girl meet in a land devastated by war and famine. The Storyteller remembers and conjures a long-long-ago land of peace and plenty – a beautiful garden inhabited by The Kritters of the land, the trees and the water. And then the humans come to the garden – Two tribes who worship different Gods. The Storyteller's tale of the corruption and loss of the ancient garden is a love story that becomes a never-ending story of old ghosts who still haunt the earth. A legend with a warning for the girl and the audience. “Don't be seduced by the music. Don't look back.”

The Storyteller (To the audience)

Be still. Be calm. Don’t get your knickers in a twist. All you saw, all you heard – it was only me, dreaming. A dark dream. A trick of the light. Twilight time is not to be trusted. Now you see it, now you don’t. Trust me. I’m a storyteller. Relax. Things always look better in the morning, after a good night’s sleep. Well, nearly always. What? You’re not afraid of the dark, are you? Big boys and girls like you?
