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 been raining. For months. And it doesn’t look like it’s going to stop any time soon.
Yasmin and Aidan are stuck working in a café that hasn’t had any customers in weeks – and their boss is too busy worrying about his flooded basement of electric guitars to bother to tell them what to do.
Yasmin loves sci-fi, reading and keeping the cafe shipshape; Aidan loves the sound of his own voice and not cleaning the coffee machine.
Oh, and Yasmin is secretly recording everything either of them says.
A story of giraffes, Star Trek – and a friendship growing while the world changes.
