Twelve Bells portrays three characters struggling with depressive alienation during the winter holiday season. As we follow their respective journeys, we share in the trials faced by many in this puzzling world of holiday madness, family expectations, and social pressure. The work asks us to contemplate the conflicting emotions of the human experience, and to remember the importance of hope in bringing light into our lives.” – Matthew Neenan, Rosie Langabeer, and Tara Middleton
