Written for Andrew Beer and Sarah Watkins, this work draws for inspiration on the book of the same name by Terry Pratchett, in which a young girl training to be a witch is taken into the middle of a forest to witness a dark Morris Dance of otherworldly men. Losing herself in the dance, she ends up joining in, disrupting the natural balance of the seasons and causing a cascade of icy problems which turn ever more deadly for mortals as the besotted Wintersmith (elemental of Winter) searches the world for her. As in all Pratchett’s books, the tale is fantastical and very funny, whilst still containing some pertinent messages on the follies of humankind.
