Adventures With The Painted People

Adventures with the Painted People is not so much a Road movie as a River movie for the stage.

It’s a story about stones and sticks.
About books and songs.
About bath-houses and bogs.
About temples and forests.
About Eithne and Lucius.

Lucius is captured by the Picts. Eithne, an extraordinary Pictish woman, risks her life to save him, however she needs something in return…
