The Chronicles of Atom & Luna

CARN TO COVE and VILLAGES IN ACTION are two of eight rural touring schemes and venues from across England who have got together to support Murray and new company FUNNELWICK LIMB to create a whole new story world which can be enjoyed by audiences this winter wherever they are.

In the story our heroes 11-year-old twins Atom & Luna are left home alone in the care of their magical child minder, Iffly Sney.  But when Iffly falls terribly ill, only the twins can save him by seeking out the mysterious Old Mother Redbeard.  And so begins Atom & Luna’s journey into the heart of a forest which will change their lives forever.

The six audio tales – going back and forward in time – exploring the magical world of the forest that Atom & Luna must conquer are being released for free right now, and you can listen to them here as the episodes become available.

Murray Lachlan Young said ‘In lockdown we started mining a story world that could not be contained by a single form, and rather than put the brakes on we let the story tell itself in the way it wanted to! So, we find ourselves starting with our story casts (perfect bedtime listening in the run up to Christmas).  We have several digital surprises up our sleeves for Spring 21 and then the more traditional book and theatre show will follow in Autumn 21.  Right now, I’m excited by how as storytellers we can continue telling stories to as many people as possible in these unusual times’
