Going West Writers Festival is proud to present the premier season of Gary John Stalker's solo theatre work Ghost Trees.

Directed by Paul Gittins with an evocative soundscape by Jude Robertson, Ghost Trees draws on science, imagination and the indefatigable love for things lost. An immersive experience that combines magical storytelling with a creative soundscape, Stalker reflects his struggle to cope with the loss of his partner to cancer and a search for answers.

He finds the devastating effects of kauri dieback on the trees surrounding his house symptomatic of a deeper malaise – climate change, species extinction, increasing isolation, and loss of identity.

Stalker takes you on his journey from the darkness of despair back into the light.
