Its no mean feat for a production to standout at the Edinburgh Festival and Land of Glass has achieved where many have failed. This Unfolding Theatre production uses Hannah Boyde to her full and the critics have been perceptive in their praise. For example, The Edinburgh List noting ‘The performances are generally strong – especially Hannah Boyde as a touchingly elfin Jun Rail’.

The Timeout review states ‘…the plot threads are sweetly engaging, and the cast draw the many characters well…‘ and this is consequently strengthened by the closing line of the Edfest review which states ‘It takes a special show to be recommendable to pretty much anyone, and this one manages it.’
This theatrical adaptation brings best-selling Italian novelist Alessandro Baricco’s wonderful, hilarious world of imagination to UK audiences for the first time. Features live music played on specially created glass instruments: marimbas, chimes, bells, even a Sauvignon-blancophone. ‘Thrillingly talented people’ (Guardian). Winner: Northern Stage Title Pending Award. Developed at BAC.
