'The Eisteddfod explores the nostalgic childhood world of orphaned siblings Abalone and his sister, Gerture. They are inseparable and love to play games together. Abalone's passion for amateur dramatics is a growing obsession, however Gertrude's interest in the imaginary worlds they create to stave off boredom is beginning to wane. But there is one final role-playing game Abalone thinks will bring his sister around and be sure to win him the ultimate prize - that first place ribbon at the Eisteddfod, with their rendition of Macbeth and Lady Macbeth.'
