In plague-ridden medieval England two young sculptors’ newest work is rejected. They’re not just broke, they’re in debt to a brutal moneylender. With the Whisperer breathing down their necks and the Black Death wrecking havoc throughout the land how can they escape doom?

With 100% of the dialogue spoken in rap and poetic verse, ‘The Quickener’ is a one-of-a-kind period drama shot on location in the West Midlands, England. It was released in 2013 and has been screened at festivals in the UK, Canada, USA, Australia and Hong Kong.
