Cristina in the Cupboard is a spellbinding experiment in comic magical realism.
Everyone needs time out.
Everyone needs to get away.
Not everyone does it like this.
Cristina has locked herself away. Join her on a breathtaking inner journey, as she navigates illusion, weathers dismay, and discovers wonder.
Playful and provocative, Cristina in the Cupboard tells of one woman’s quest to live life entirely on her own terms.
