Drawing loosely on the Greek myth of Demeter and Persephone, this new play explores the process of individuation, the inevitability of the journey into the shadow and into the unknown, of the bonds that connect mothers and children to each other, of loss and the dense beautiful soaring life that we are all traveling through.

It traces the story of a young girl who loses family and home brutally and irrevocably and is forced to journey to a new place through many dangers and uncertainties.
