LAStheatre in association with Bath Spa Productions present

The Girl of Ink and Stars

“They say the day the Governor arrived, the ravens did too. All the smaller birds flew backwards into the sea, and that is why there are no songbirds on the island of Joya. Only huge, ragged ravens.”

Isabella dreams of the faraway lands her father once mapped but the Governor has closed the borders, clipping the wings of her aspirations. When her best friend disappears, she’s determined to be part of the search party. Guided by an ancient map and her knowledge of the stars, Isabella navigates the island’s dangerous Forgotten Territories. But beneath the dry rivers and dead forests, a fiery myth is stirring from its sleep.

We are proud to present the very first adaptation of the award-winning children’s book ‘The Girl of Ink and Stars’ by Kiran Millwood Hargrave, adapted and directed by Barra Collins. This amateur production is staged by students from Bath School of Music and Performance and presented with permission from the author.
