    Alandra Hileman is your one-stop shop for epic high-fantasy narrative with a feminist twist. More than any other play we've produced, this play left audiences saying "Now I want to read the novel" (or watch the HBO series, or play the RPG...), a testament to Alandra's world- and mythology-building prowess. Gerda is a strong female character par excellence, surrounded by a great cast of supporting characters that our actors loved sinking their teeth into. Musical and magical, Spell Eternity deserves a multi-million dollar production on a major stage (though, of course, it can be done with far less). Do recommend!
