'Solstice - Tales of Midsummer'
This is a beautiful original story of the magic and mystery of the summer solstice!
Think fairies, sorcery, magic, ancient kings and woodland nymphs
‘Are all our wishes ones that we want to be granted?’
It’s the Summer Solstice and spirits in the village are high as the residents prepare for the celebrations that evening, but there is one person finding celebrating difficult. Rosina’s chronically sick brother has shown no sign of improving despite all possible treatment from the village doctor.
Desperate to save her only remaining family member, she desperately investigates alternative ways to help him. In her search for a cure, she comes across some information on a magical ritual that claims to grant any wish when performed on the Summer Solstice.
Knowing that the elders of the village will never permit her to take on the dangerous tasks the ritual asks of her, she confides in two friends to try and convince them in joining her in her quest.
Though concerned about the potential danger involved, and sceptical that the magic spell Rosina tells them about even exists, the two friends reluctantly agree to join Rosina on her seemingly hopeless quest, knowing that she will never forgive herself if she didn’t at least try everything possible to help her sick brother.
Cover stories made up and told to their families and friends, and armed with materials ready to make their wishes, the three friends head off into the forest.
Who are the mystical creatures Rosina has heard about, and do they even exist?
Will she and her friends be in danger?
Who are the mythical woodland kings the village elders speak of?
Are all our wishes ones that we want to be granted?
Head down to Penlee Open Air Theatre to see this magical production - your little ones will be able to meet the Fairies after the show and receive a special gift!
