    So we’d work away… digging, sifting, dusting, recording… without knowing or needing to then, which dreamers’ sleep we might be a part of yet.

    Isobel is summoned to a cottage in Argyll, which she inherits following the sudden death of her childhood friend, Yvonne. Sorting through Yvonne’s books, objects and research, Isobel
    uncovers Yvonne’s interest in Scottish writer and archaeologist Marion Campbell, and Marion's novel The Dark Twin.

    Guided by Yvonne and Marion, Isobel journeys through layers of memories, signs and stories to reach the truth Yvonne discovered before she died.

    This new play by Rebecca Sharp layers reality and fantasy through immersive writing, design, lighting and original music. / @Stellarquines
