Every full moon two teenage girls meet in a forest clearing to experiment with the occult. But as they delve deeper into the spirit world, they learn that the forest holds secrets that they were never prepared for. Exploring witchcraft, friendship, sisterhood and dead mice, Obsidian is a dark comedy by Kate Burke.
Obsidian was the first original Datura show, which ran as a short northern tour, notable venues being The Kings Arms, Salford and The Fleeting Arms, York. It was rehearsed in a flat in Manchester, where the group spent equal amounts rehearsing, drinking wine and watching Lord of the Rings.
