A Hauntingly beautiful story about love and friendship that will reach out and touch us all. A very special theatre experience for the very young and their families, grandma will enjoy it as well.

Black Dog and Christina lived together in a little cottage on the edge of a forest. They had been friends for a very long time, they played together, they swam together, they ran barefoot through the forest. Then, suddenly, one cold day in winter, everything began to change…

Even the very young know the pain of love. In this hauntingly beautiful story we share Black Dog’s pain as he waits and waits for the return of Christina’s love.

In the Sprig, they ran together over the hills. In the Summer, they swam together in the river. In the Autumn, they played together in the fallen leaves.

As it got cooler they collected sticks for the fire that would keep them warm during the long winter months.

For all ages from 2 years to 100 years old and their companions.

Presented by arrangement with Playmarket.
