Description

A woman grieving for the loss of her daughter is drawn to the mystery of the Wishing Well. She asks for her daughter back but this comes at a price. Will she be willing to accept the forfeit? This play premiered at the StagEHd festival to excellent reviews. A powerful drama with outstanding performances from all the cast. You can not fail to be moved by the plight of the grieving mother and the touches of comedy balance the intensity. The movement section of the play is choreographed by John Ross.

A heart touching drama, and all actresses are brilliant. I thoroughly enjoyed the performance. Definitely for those who are parents or will be parents.

A beautifully acted drama which balanced emotional, poignant elements with light-hearted moments. A moving story exploring parenthood and loss interwoven with the supernatural.

I think most parents and young adults will recognise and identify with the stages of childhood and the joys and tribulations of the relationship between parents and their children. I would recommend a light bite at the iconic venue along with this show for a memorable afternoon.
