...long before that, long before England was an idea, a country of snow and wolves where trees sang and birds talked and people knew we mattered...

In a broken world, two sisters meet an extraordinary creature. The Skriker is a shapeshifter; an old woman, a child, a death portent. She is a faerie come from the Underworld to pursue and entrap them, through time and space, through this world and her own.

Directed by Sarah Frankcom, the creative team also includes designer Lizzie Clachan, lighting by Jack Knowles, sound by David McSeveney, choreographer Imogen Knight, composers Nico Muhly & Antony Hegarty, casting director Jerry Knight-Smith CDG, and associate director Bryony Shanahan.
