There’s a wolf tooth growin in me heart and it’s turnin me from everywan and everthin I am.
A young woman unravelling.
A twin reappearing.
A family torn asunder by the living and the dead.
Today is Portia’s birthday. But it’s not a day for family and celebrations. Because Portia is making terrible choices, lurching between past and present, and wondering if the hand of fate has already set her course.
Tormented by her dead twin Gabriel, who disappeared into the depths of the Belmont River 15 years ago, she wreaks havoc on all she loves in a desperate bid to save herself.
“Superb, dreamlike revival”
“A drama rich with secrets”
Picked by Vogue, Time Out and Evening Standard as a show to see this autumn.
