Performances take place at the Redgrave Theatre, BS8 3LE

Myteline, on the Island of Lesbos... the local brothel is running out of wares for its clients. A new girl is brought in, purchased from pirates. She is everything the brothel needs - young, beautiful, unsullied. There is a fortune to be made from her.

But one problem arises - she will not ‘do the deed of darkness’.

The maid’s virtue starts miraculously to change the lives of those around her, and when a stranger Prince puts in at the harbour - a man driven by misfortune and grief into a state of catatonic disconnection from the world - the maid attempts to cure him by telling a story. Unbeknown to her, the story she tells him is his own.

A tale of adventure, love redeemed and redeeming, and of the triumph of the human spirit over the crushing blows of fate.
