BEAST AT THE DOOR

An albino camel mysteriously appears on the doorstep of an unhappily married Vicar and his wife, changing their lives forever, and delighting their small English village... until people start to go missing. (Adapted from the 1936 novella, THE CAMEL, by Lord Berners, with permission of the Berners Trust, UK.)

Stage 32's Coverage said, "Unique and original... this script has a strong and independent woman at its core. It challenges societal mores as well as its religious conventions."
