‘We would do this thing on New Year's Day. Whisper a wish into the wind and it’ll blow it all around the world so the universe can help it come true.’
Charlie’s dreams of becoming a musician are going nowhere, and Sam’s world feels like a bubble that’s about to burst. As the pair struggle with a sense of belonging and connection, can a chance Christmas encounter unwrap the answers they have been looking for?
A new play with music by Benjamin Storey, (Skeletons in Cullercoats & Gutter Weeds). Wishes On The Wind is a celebration of Northumbrian identity, folk music, and family tradition.
This production will also feature a short play by Alison Scurfield (Intergalactic) as a festive curtain-raiser.
