Helena has lost and buried her father. Now an orphan – and an outsider – she pines for the love of Bertram, the son of her adopted family. He too is reeling from the death of his father. Will grief unite or divide them?

Set in a decaying world where kings are dying and wars are brewing, this is a knotty tale of young rebellion and boundless determination. Caroline Byrne brings this dark, twisted and dangerous interpretation to the candlelit intimacy of the Sam Wanamaker Playhouse.
