Originally commissioned by Graffiti Theatre Company in Ireland, this quirky play weaves a stark urban reality with the mythic underworld. This modern, dark "fairy tale" reinvents the hero's journey for the 21st Century and propels its audience through the dangerous streets of "Stab City" and into the dark underworld of change and transformation.
