Client Collaborative project with Murray Lachlan Young. To be delivered by the new company Funnilwick Limb Ltd
Role – Creative Producer
The project is currently in R&D (thanks to support from Arts Council England through the National Lottery). Initially in rehearsal rooms, and then in zoom rooms we have been working on developing the story world of twins Atom and Luna.
The current plan will see us release the first iteration of the story as a podcast i November 2020, with festival readings acorss 2021 followed by the launch of the play and book in either Autumn 21 or Spring 22.
Our heroes, Atom and Luna, (left home-alone by their mother) are saved from starvation by the arrival of the magical child-minder Iffly Sney.
But Iffly falls terribly ill and only the twins can save him. They must seek out the mysterious Old Mother Red-Beard.
And so begins a journey deep into the heart of the forest that will change their lives forever.
