Overview

Two proper Victorian sisters, both now grown women and mothers, return to their childhood nursery to relive the haunting memories of their youth. Magically, they are transported back to their girlhood, as their nursery becomes a woodland glen peopled by bizarre goblins who entice them with luscious fruits and promises of unimagined ecstasies. One of the sisters, Laura, partakes of the forbidden offerings, while her sibling, Lizzie, bargains desperately with the fey creatures to save her from inexorably falling under their spell. Blending music, poetry and entrancing imagery, the play is a dazzling journey through the psyches of the two sisters as they struggle to regain the present and to reconcile the fervent, erotic yearnings of their adolescence with the matter-of-fact world that they now inhabit. Happily they succeed, but their voyage in and out of the past—and through the labyrinths of their vivid imaginations —weaves an enchanted spell that will linger long in the memory.

Her sister's love saves Laura from the poison of the fruit she bought from the goblins in the haunted glen.

Editorial Reviews

NY Post
...an absolutely gorgeous piece of Victorian erotica.
Variety
GOBLIN MARKET is a spellbinding, highly imaginative mini-musical...
NY Daily News
...one of the season's few genuine successes. It's certainly in a class by itself.

    A wonderful but sometimes overlooked writer.

    Rossetti's poetry in some of the most imortant writings from the Victorian Gothic era, yet many times it is overlooked. If you are into this era or just want to be awed by some thought provoking poetry I would recommend you read Rossetti.
