From Arts on Sunday, 2:30 pm on 29 July 2012

This week some of our local Kiwi talent will be making it onto the international stage as part of The Edinburgh Fringe Festival. Writer and actor Ralph McCubbin Howell has written a twisted children's fairy tale set in a Central Otago Gold mining town.

Sonia Sly speaks to Ralph and Director Hannah Smith to find out more.
