This is a story about a girl who followed a map off the edge of the world.
In New Zealand, there are some 56,000 kilometres of paper roads – streets and towns that exist only on surveyors’ maps. Or do they? A young woman strays from the beaten track and finds herself in a paper world.
It seems to be a land of possibility, but she soon discovers that things that happen in the fictional world can have frighteningly real consequences.
From award-winning company Trick of the Light Theatre (‘The Bookbinder’) comes an original fairy-tale drawn from the twitchy edges of children’s literature – a dark world reminiscent of the works of Neil Gaiman and the late (great) Margaret Mahy.
