Magic Tree, The

Ursula Rani Sarma
 
Which comes first, loneliness or violence? This is the story of love born in a very dark place between a man who wants to belong and a woman who wants to be forgotten. On a stormy night, they shelter in an abandoned summer home and tentatively discover what it is that they have in common. But just when it seems something beautiful might emerge, the opposite appears.

The Magic Tree is an exploration into human behaviour at a time when humanity seems determined to endlessly repeat the mistakes of the past. It looks at why good people are capable of doing bad things and asks if love alone can save us.

Yerma

A new version by Ursula Rani Sarma

Ursula Rani Sarma
 
Lorca's beautiful and savage play is transplanted from the suffocating heat of Spain to a barren landscape much closer to home, bringing Yerma's anguish at her childlessness into heart-breaking focus. Suffocating in a life void of passion, Yerma turns to unconventional sources for answers. Her innocent yet controversial actions send shockwaves through a tiny and stagnant community. Desperate and unbearably lonely, Yerma commits the ultimate act of rebellion, setting her free yet sealing her unhappy fate forever.
