Milly is an old working boat whos timbers are failing. On Midsummers Day she travels by magic through the Blisworth Tunnel to the Old World of horse drawn boats where she is made well again. But she cannot return and her friends who guided her must leave her there.

The show is produced by Bonnet and Belt – in collaboration with Alarum Theatre – who received funding by the Arts Council for an R&D project to develop the script.
