Tony believes in the healing powers of stories; Iain’s been scrubbing his fingers since 3am; Saffron’s stalking her piano teacher. The group emerges: ready for therapy. But Cressida deflects her gaze. Punished for love, what can she hope for? Inspired by medieval Scots poet Henryson’s The Testament of Cresseid. In a performance style that’s eclectic and raw, children become adults. 'Superbly written/directed by Suzanne Marston… a stunning piece of ensemble theatre' ***** (, on Early Hours, 2013). 'Hard pushed to be beaten across the country... just so truly brilliant' (NT Connections, 2017).
