New Hampshire Theatre Project presents Goblin Market
New Hampshire Theatre Project’s 26th season continues with Goblin Market, an intimate chamber musical featuring award-winning actors Heather Glenn Wixson and Linette Miles as sisters who find their bonds of love tested by temptation. Based on Christina Rossetti’s most famous poem, the play is rich with evocative images, haunting music, vivid language, and a fantastic journey that follows the plight of two sisters inexplicably drawn to a dark glen where they encounter a band of mysterious "goblin merchant men” who offer them what they most desire and what they most fear. Director Danielle Howard, in her first production at NHTP, describes Goblin Market as “part fairytale, part memory, and a feast for all the senses.”
