Alone, alone the darkness drifted
Across, across the solar night
She mended and tended to all of her children
Neglected and tarlike!
As Christmas Eve dawns on a distant asteroid orbiting Jupiter, Reverie can’t wait to find the present she begged for under the tree. But when Mother Tar, the three-mouthed behemoth of oil and bone that runs the shelter, finds her opening presents early, she teleports all the presents away in a rage and cancels Christmas for everyone.
Now it’s up to Reverie and her gang to retrieve their gifts and find Father Christmas at the dark side of the asteroid, dodging Reindroids, black holes and even the dreaded Quasar Beast along the way.
A gothic sci-fi quest of Christmassy proportions! Performed by the Strange Town 11-14 group (Wednesdays). Written by Daniel Orejon and directed by James Beagon.
