A theatre/puppetry piece in development.
The story of a 10-year-old girl who discovers there is magic behind the tasty dishes she and her grandmother make together in their tiny cottage kitchen. Just before Wren's 11th birthday, her grandmother suddenly falls ill. Wren finds a hidden recipe book which may hold the key to a cure. As she gets ever closer, a sinister presence emerges to stop her from unlocking the secrets behind the recipes. A tale of magic, courage, and the extraordinary bond between a granddaughter and grandmother.
