Land Skeins showcases four magical realist stories, telling tales of encounters between humans and the natural world. Each is inspired by one of the four seasons, exploring the role of nature in shaping our families, friendships and romances.
These plays offer a new fully immersive listening experience for an audience of 15 years and up. They have been designed and recorded using binaural sound technology, which, when listened to through headphones, will transport the listener right into the very centre of the story.

It’s the night of the Spring Equinox and it’s Celeste 18th birthday. It’s also her grandad’s birthday, but he’s gone missing in Epping Forest. Trying to track him down, Celeste discovers that March, a childhood friend also born on the same day, might be the only person who can help.
Celeste and March don’t see eye to eye anymore, but right now they can agree on one thing – this isn’t a normal forest on a normal night.
