GRANDAD AND THE MACHINE – Jack Dean
A story for anyone who ever dreamed of a different world.
A hundred-year-old mechanical monster emerges from the waves. Everyday objects turn on their makers and the Empire is plunged into chaos. No one knows why. No one can stop it. Except maybe Grandad. He always was good with a spanner.
That’s why Imogen and her father head north to find him. Their journey becomes an epic quest across England that leads to the heart of a dark family secret.
A work-in-progress showing of a brand new steampunk fairytale for grownups, mixing vivid storytelling with an original score. There will be Zeppelins. It will be whimsical. We will overcome tyranny while having a rollicking good time.
