“I don’t know why I became an actor,” Mr. Arnold has said. “My first memory of a theatre experience was at the age of three, and I was watching my father play the role of Billy Bigelow in the musical “Carousel.” When he fell on his knife and died, I started screaming and my uncle had to carry me out. Backstage after the show, when I saw my dad greeting people, I hurled myself into his arms sobbing in relief.”

SYNOPSIS: A night of stargazing is cut short when a worried father must put his young son to bed who suffers from a dangerous and bloody cough. The father soon falls asleep but is startled awake by the spirit of his son leaving their cabin and wandering into the woods. The father frantically races after his son going deeper into the woods only to come upon a mysterious Weaver interlacing threads into a pattern on a giant loom. The father begs the Weaver to spare the life of his son, and the Weaver responds by giving the father a needle and thread. Is it a dream? Is it a reality? Or is it somewhere in the in-between?
