Thunderer (play, 2013)

Inspired by listening to Rautavaara’s Cantus Arcticus. When tribal king and queen Thunderer and Moonlake capture Walker, a warrior from a rival tribe, they are faced with the difficult question of whether to set aside old enmities and join together for the sake of peace and progress. But the Waterfall Star is on the move and growing brighter every night, and time is pressing.

With plenty of on-stage action and special effects, this full-length play – or dramatic hypothesis – in two acts was completed for the King’s Cross New Writing Award in April 2013, without any luck.
