We are a small community. The happiness of our children is everything. Our hopes and dreams rest in these tiny souls. In a small town in northern Denmark, the children celebrate Harvest Festival.
In the forest by the water the men of the lodge stand naked in the cold. This is their country. This is their song. In the shadows a lonely child gives a strange man her heart. The hunt begins.
The Hunt is at The Almeida Theatre 17th June to 3rd August 2019.
