“You are desire and beauty and you will never fade away.”
James is in Reykjavík for the Northern Lights, but they’re not here. Instead he ventures into the 24-hour dark of the Icelandic winter and finds himself entangled with dangerous strangers, suspicious lovers, malevolent birds and the mysterious Huldufólk. Playwright Steve Yockey (very still & hard to see), a genre-bending master of suspense, takes us to the end of the Earth to experience a dark, sometimes supernatural world populated with characters who defy expectations at every turn.
