Ballet Folk and Words of a Fiddler's Daughter present 'The Tears of Jenny Greenteeth'

This is a tale from a time younger than ours, where love and forgiveness triumphantly overcome fear, sadness and greed. A tale where nature triumphs over the poison of industry.

A Miller’s daughter is swept away in the mill race, her parents left transformed by grief. The people of Greenwater live in fear as their children disappear - suspecting that they are being taken and drowned by the Miller - whilst the devastated Miller’s husband creates an industrial complex and an army of workers, his skills as a magical toymaker transformed to pursue wealth. Many in the town benefit from the riches, but the society becomes more and more divided - a social wasteland begins to mirror the industrial one. An unexpected return precipitates change - but it is a race between disaster and redemption.
