‘Your hurricane hands make my lucid light bleak,
I cannot love you, sweet girl, for you're making me weak.’

The Girl with The Hurricane Hands (and other short tales of woe) is a collection of five rhyming short stories focusing on the birth, childhood and adolescence of a child with an absurdist "deformity", which is usually a result of a strange conception. In the case of the eponymous girl who is born with small hurricanes instead of hands, her sweet nature juxtaposes her tempestuous body, causing her endless strife and heartbreak.

Our cast of five actors will present each of these short stories with rhythmic verse and polished physicality. Each will adopt the persona of a child faced with overcoming their vast differences in one story, and form the ensemble for the remaining four. The company of Bristol University undergraduates presents this exciting piece of theatre to the Edinburgh Fringe Free Festival.
