Sammy and her dad used to make up stories about giants and mix witches' potions in the kitchen. But now, something outside is frightening Sammy's dad. So they stay inside their flat, at the top of a tall house overlooking the city. Dad's fear of the outside world starts to take shape in unsettling, fairy-tale ways. Brambles and vines are creeping up the walls and tapping at the windows to get in. Can Sammy release Dad from his illness in time to make Mum's present with her, before Mum gets home for Christmas? This is a fun, spooky and contemporary Christmas story, told from the perspective of 8-year-old Sammy. It's a story about bravery and kindness, which also tackles the isolation we've all experienced over the past few months. We will be drawing inspiration from classic winter tales, both cosy and gothic, as well as opera, theatre and film to create a thrilling story-telling experience, in a wonderfully intimate setting.
