Darkness. Love. Terror. Freedom.
Will you be led by sharp-tongued crows? Will you walk from the safety of civilisation into the deep-dark wild?
Wolf’s Child, tells the tale of ‘Mother’ who protects her girls from the dangers of the wild. When a wolf attack leaves her injured she sends her most trusted girl into the woods in her place. Here the girl discovers darkness, love, terror and freedom.
Wolf’s Child is a story for all the senses which stirs the soul and explores the very essence of being human.
