The Arctic Group presents this new drama spun from a love of vegetation and Greek mythology about a tree who was once a woman. More…

Daphne is a tree. But she wasn’t always. In fact, she’d do anything to be human again. Even if it means undergoing the ax. 'Daphne' is a hero’s journey of survival, symbolism, and poetic endurance. Part of IRT's 3B Development Series.
