Women and girls at the threshold of transformation. Do they take that first step into the kingdom for the fairies? Do they jump from the glass mountain into the dead sea?

Bold Daughters is a 2 hour storytelling performance of folktales about women and girls who engage their wit and wisdom and do what needs to be done for a deeper, freer, fuller and happier life. In the company of musicians Nicky Haire and Charlie Menzies, journey with Alice through burning forests, quaking bogs, and crashing oceans.
