North Country Theatre: The Gift of Stones
North Country Theatre present: The Gift of Stones
The village of flint knappers is safe, self-satisfied, and inward looking, but a stray arrow, an amputation, and a wild woman from the salt sea marshes bring murder, mystery and cataclysmic change.
Narrated by a one armed story teller and his daughter, in a language as pared down and flinty as their tools and weapons, Jim Crace’s award winning historical novel is brought to the stage by the company whose brilliant adaptations have ranged from the hilarious 39 Steps to the scary The Rocking Horse Winner, and most recently the deeply moving “A Month in the Country”.
