Helen, Philip and Edwin are best friends. They do everything together. Helen tells the boys stories, stories about the three of them and the world they live in, all wrapped up in fantasy and fairy-tale and truth.
One night Helen disappeared. Her clothes are found by the side of a river. No trace of her is ever found.
It’s 10 years later. Edwin and Philip are about to find out everything.
“…the only reason I knew I wasn’t drowning was that suddenly it got brighter, everything got brighter – and all those senses that had been fuzzed out, they started to come back so sharp, so focused, and the sucking at new air.”

The York Pullman Bus Company
We’d like to thank The York Pullman Bus Company for all their help with making Keep happen!
They have been keeping our fantastic choir partners, The 24, from University of York safe as they’re ferried from festival to festival on the winding roads of North Yorkshire!
