Ghost Quartet tickets in London
This song cycle tells a tale of love, loss and whiskey that twists and turns through the ages. Rose has a problem, she’s in love with a treehouse astronomer. Not only has he betrayed her but with her sister, no less.
As Rose searches for revenge a passing bear might just hold the answer to her problems. He agrees to help, but nothing in this life comes free and his services are going to cost her. His demands number four: a pot of honey, a piece of stardust, a secret baptism and a photo of a ghost.
Her quest to find the items needed to finally have her revenge lead her on a heady journey across continents, through the centuries and into the very cosmos. And though her brain is muddled with the stories, and the songs, and the time (and the haze of whiskey) Rose has a sneaking feeling that she’s been here and done that before.
