A world premiere written by Laura Turner - THE BURIED MOON - Miranda and Caliban reimagined
A young woman struggling to relate to her father after her mother’s death, goes out to the marshes one night to take her own life. She is saved by a monstrous looking young man - Caliban - an a friendship and romance is born between them.
Inspired by the theory that the character of Caliban in The Tempest was informed by folklore legends of the wetland creatures that want the Lincolnshire fenlands, The Buried Moon is an exploration, reimagining and re-appropriation of the Miranda/Caliban dynamic from Miranda’s perspective set in the Lincolnshire fen communities of today.
