The People in the Rocks, excerpted from the musical is available to view here

Sigrún’s Fire is a new musical set in Iceland …a land where the planet is still forming. Ice. Volcanoes. Lava. Tectonic plates tearing at each other beneath our feet. And on this violent and shifting land lives a small community who are themselves about to erupt. Faith. Love. Jealousy. Passion. Sex. The fight to survive. Sigrún’s Fire is the story of how we, and the planet, create and destroy our lives.
