The Girl of Ink and Stars

Posted on

Delighted to be adapting and directing the first ever stage adaptation of The Girl of Ink and Stars by Kiran Millwood Hargrave. The show will run in the Spring half-term at Theatre Royal Bath’s space for young people – the egg.

“They say the day the Governor arrived, the ravens did too. All the smaller birds flew backwards into the sea, and that is why there are no songbirds on the island of Joya. Only huge, ragged ravens.”

Isabella dreams of the faraway lands her father once mapped but the Governor has closed the borders, clipping the wings of her aspirations. When her best friend disappears, she’s determined to be part of the search party. Guided by an ancient map and her knowledge of the stars, Isabella navigates the island’s dangerous Forgotten Territories. But beneath the dry rivers and dead forests, a fiery myth is stirring from its sleep.
