A new musical, by Buchan and Barne (The Season).

Deep in the wilds of Cornwall lies the tiny fishing village of Newfrock. The inhabitants are a curious and mischievous gaggle of misfits Рa smuggling schoolmistress, the sinful priest, reprobate orphans and singing fishermen Рwho, despite their differences, abide by a strange patchwork of rituals and beliefs in order to protect the village’s secrets.
