On top of a mountain in the middle of a blizzard, you see a figure: eight foot tall, with white matted hair covering his body. He stands upright on two legs. You see him. He sees you. But who will believe you and how far can you trust what you see?
Thomas Eccleshare’s new drama is the story of a scientist with an unbelievable story to tell, a woman who doesn’t know what to believe.
