About Strange and Splendid
A Girl goes on a fantastic journey to retrieve her Boy, who has been kidnapped by God. On her way, she encounters an island where nobody believes in sadness, a mountain enclave where young soldiers train for a chance to fight in a war they’ve never actually seen, and a curse that lives inside her body. A verse play meditating on women’s work, the hero’s journey, and the nature of storytelling.
