Play • 58 min

Hugo Award-winner Alix E. Harrow is the author of the historical portal fantasy, THE TEN THOUSAND DOORS OF JANUARY (Orbit Books / Red Hook). In the early years of the 20th century, a young girl named January finds herself the ward of a wealthy aristocrat, Mr. Locke. A dark-skinned girl of ambiguous ethnicity, January is a source of curiosity and skepticism for her benefactor’s society of affluent, white, would-be treasure hunters. Amongst Locke’s peculiar collection, she discovers an even more peculiar book, and in it a tale of Doors that open onto other worlds. January feels the the truth of its words, because she opened one such Door when she was a child. As her tightly wound-life begins to unravel, these Doors may be her only escape – though an oppressive household will be the least of what she flees from.
