A gun. A bath. A telephone. An island.

The island is all Vera has ever known. She lives with her father, a man who lights stars in the darkness, paints clouds in the sky and conjures the evening tide. One night after a storm a young man washes up on the shore, half dead, and everything Vera knows is turned upside down.

Intimate and immersive, 'Land & Sea' is a rich and intoxicating theatrical ‘strange loop’. Reality expands and contracts. Time and space are not what they seem as multiple fragments of the same story twist and tunnel into a kaleidoscopic world of wonder and absurdity.
