About This Girl Laughs, This Girl Cries, This Girl Does Nothing

What happens when your world is turned upside down and you have to find your own way?

On a dark and cold night, triplet sisters are abandoned in a forest by their father and on that same night, three resolutions are made. The first sister walks in one direction to find purpose, the second walks the opposite direction to find adventure and the third, she stays right where she is, believing her life should be built from this spot. Through their individual adventures the girls have grown forests, baked cakes, saved villages, sang songs, fought wars, crossed oceans and built homes.

Twenty years later the sisters meet back in the forest, where it all started, now as women. The tenacious trio at the heart of this contemporary fairytale inspire audiences with their determination and sisterhood, this is a story that will empower and encourage us to take charge of your own path in life.
