Despite the priests fondness for tuica (a local plum brandy) and a tendency to side with the Tsigani in local disputes, life remained pretty much unchanged. But when Eveline, the lop-faced daughter of a leading family, elopes with Vadim, the crippled son of the Roma dancing clan, Father Nandru has twenty four hours to pull the situation back from the brink. At the last moment, mysterious wolves emerge from the forest with surprising advice before Father Nandru has a catastrophic vision of the villages demise. Now the little community must put aside their differences once and for all and pull together if anything is to survive into the future.Julian Garner has lived in Scandinavia most of his adult life, first in Norway and, from 1998, in Finland, where he moved together with his Finnish partner, Motley-trained Theatre designer Hanna Horte. They set up a community Arts company, CulturaMobila, in 2004 and were nominated for a State Arts Prize in 2008. They collaborated with media artists Andy Best and Merja Puustinen on Speak No Evil, a huge outdoor event involving some 300 local people, for the European Capital of Culture celebrations in Turku, 2011.A typical folk tale, rambling, extraordinary, changeable and full of character and animation. – What’s on StageJulian Garner’s richly decorated folk play tells a story of community and kinship that has its heart and soul lodged firmly in the right place. – ExeuntA celebration of traditional culture. – British Theatre Guide
