Alex and his mother Rosie don’t really get along and live separate lives online. Alex lives for gaming, his mother invents her social life through the internet. When Alex’s grandfather falls ill they have to face reality. Together.
When an accident sucks them from the hospital ward into one of Alex’s games, Fablestory, they’re suddenly thrown from negotiating the daily grind to outwitting mythical creatures. This is not going to be a typical day.
With inventive staging, a magical score by Gareth Farr and a script by New Zealand playwrights Rachel Callinan & Kate Morris – this is a truthful, funny and telling look at a family finding their way back home.
