This Land (Paperback) (Sian Owen)
about this item
And strange smells would arrive on the wind. So it seemed that there was some kind of magic in this field. Some said that there was a dragon underneath that had been woken by the lightning. Some said there was treasure down there too.
Fracking. How far down do you own the land beneath your feet? How much does where you live inform the person you become? What happens when someone else comes along and stakes their claim?
For young couple Bea and Joseph this is a story of fracture: of fractured hearts, lives and lands.This Land digs down through the history – and the future – of a patch of earth and everything that has and will happen there. This programme text edition was published to coincide with the play's premiere by Pentabus Theatre Company, Shropshire, in March 2016.
