A woman burdened by the past tries to relive happier times as an attempt to stay positive and gain strength to venture onto a brighter new stage of her life.

Through Comedy, tragedy, puppetry, truth and fantasy, Twigs That Never Took depicts a woman struggling to find the way forward.

Time has moved on and she is no longer young, but has an urgent need to relive her happier days as an attempt to stay positive and gain strength.

She has always tried to do the right things in life, but things haven’t always turned out as she had hoped, so now it is time to find another way forward. 

Like the cuttings she is trying to strike, she too wants to thrive and flourish.
