A boy stands on a lakeshore. Behind him: all he’s ever known. Ahead: a chance for love but a higher chance of death. He’s had a happy life and a sheltered one. But his father gambled away that life, the debt cannot be paid in money and it won’t be his father who pays. Childhood is over …

Dominic, Bridget and Leif combine storytelling and music in a playful and gripping performance. They bring to life an ancient full-bloodied fairy tale for modern audiences, weaving versions from Norway, Scotland, Ireland and India with contemporary Scandinavian folk music. Through it they explore the consequences for the young when older generations fail to make adult decisions.

Created and performed by:

Dominic Kelly – storyteller
Bridget Marsden – violin
Leif Ottosson – accordion

“A bewitching fusion of storytelling and music that takes theatre right back to its origins … a magical night. Dominic Kelly … is a consistently engaging and energetic narrator … He brings the stories to life and deftly navigates the way through a multi-layered narrative. It is the music in combination with Kelly’s narration that makes this production so special. Violin and accordion duo Bridget Marsden and Leif Ottosson beautifully fuse enchanting Nordic music with Kelly’s prose” – A Younger Theatre
