Description: 19th Century Fossil Hunter, Mary Anning, in the last days of her life and increasingly dependent on laudanum, battles to complete the presentation of one last fossil, that will rock the world. Into this frenzy bursts life-long friend, collector and artist Henry de la Beche. Henry’s arrival awakens emotions that Mary thought long buried. He has extraordinary news that Mary seems unable to grasp; together they embark on a strange journey back through her life, partly dream, partly memory revisiting amalgams of places, events, dinosaurs, and people long gone.

Through it all is her enigmatic relationship with Henry; can Mary find resolution and peace? A play about frustration and achievement; dreams and memories – long, long ago.
