A play about loss and re-birth, Eclipse: A Tale for Winter, told the story of Buzz always in the shadow of his sister, Amma and his best mate Dap. While Buzz has lots to say and loads of questions to ask, no-one seems to take him seriously, no-one seems to listen.

Eclipse: A Tale for Winter followed Buzz on an imaginary journey through the landscape of his inquisitive imagination, telling stories based on the folklore of the countries that lay in the direct path of the 1999 solar eclipse… from Cornwall, to the Romanian Mountains, and the ancient lands of Turkey and Persia, ending the adventure in the magical Bay of Bengal.

With an evocative soundtrack that was inspired by the music of the geographic locations visited in the play, this production toured nationally to venues.
