Xhensila has lost a child.
Leona has lost a child.
The two women are very similar.
They could not be more different.
As Kate Clanchy's nailbiting and bitterly funny play uncovers the where, the how and the why of their missing children, we discover exactly why parenthood is not a fairytale.
Xhensila - Eri Shuka

The music accompanying the programme is sung by Sister Mildred Barker, from the collection 'Early Shaker Spirituals', published by Rounder Records.
A missing child unites two women in Kate Clanchy's compelling nursery tale for grown ups.
