The EUTC proudly presents Moria uffini's stage adaption of Catherine Storr's classic tale.
‘There’s a force in this place. You felt it in the cold wind and now it is in them. It pulls at you, pulls all the energy. I think it would pull the light from the sky if it could.’
On her tenth birthday Marianne is stuck down with a sudden fever. Ill and bored with being bed-ridden, Marianne picks up a pencil and starts doodling - a great open plain, a house, a garden, a boy at the window. That night she has an extraordinary dream. As she sleeps, Marianne is transported into her drawing.
Together with the boy at the window, Marianne finds her dream world increasingly austere and frightening; the land is cold and barren and there is force watching them; waiting.
Their every movement is guarded by these menacing watchers that surround the solitary house. Together, in their dreams, Marianne and Mark must escape and save themselves.
Can Marianne walk the line between dreams and reality?
