A tale of maps, myth and monsters

Forbidden to leave her island, Isabella dreams of the faraway lands her father once mapped. When a girl from the village disappears into the island's Forgotten Territories, Isabella and her lifelong friend Pablo go in search of her.

Following her map and an ancient myth, Isabella discovers that deep beneath the dry rivers and smoky mountains, a fiery legend is stirring from its sleep...

The Girl of Ink and Stars is full of myth, magic and map-making – a story about children, their bravery and their curiosity.

In a first for our library shows, we are making use of immersive technology to provide 360° sound. Audience members will be provided with headsets to transport them to Isabella's world and experience her journey along with her. Click here for more information.

A new play by Satinder Chohan, based on the book by Kiran Millwood Hargrave.
