A dark fairytale about grief, rebellion and the power of love. Once in opposing kingdoms lived a princess and a prince who had lost their mothers. Althea, unable to cry, became light with grief and floated, and so was locked away. Digby became so heavy-hearted that he could never smile, and so was trained as a warrior. One day, he declares war. Althea is forced out of hiding and down to ground but, in defiance of her father, she escapes, only to encounter the solemn prince on contested land. Beside a lake the warring heirs begin a passionate and illicit affair. But for Althea to find real love, she must first confront the world's darkness and face her own deepest fears.Performers Rosalie Craig (Althea), Hadley Fraser (Digby), Norman Bowman, Gabrielle Brooks, Anna-Jane Casey, David Langham, Louis Maskell, Laura Pitt Pulford, Trevor Dion-Nicholas (King Darius).
