'Beneath yonder hills a maiden sleeps
Quilted by the grass,
But though she murmurs
No folk learneth
The dreams felt by that lass.'

It's springtime, but the folk of Briggsley village have never known such strife. The ground beneath them has puckered up and hardened. Now no plough is able to scrape up a crumb of loam. And not their spit nor the river itself can soften it to mud.

Nina, a young women prone to visions, knows where this is going and where they ought to go instead. Orla trusts her, of course, but her people will not heed her. She hopes that hungry men are more easily led.

Unsoiled is a mischievous catastrophe, and very original, but will it break ground?

This performance is recommended for audiences aged 15+
