Spectretown (Stoirm Òg)

Saturday 5 September 2015 @ 7:30 pm

Stoirm Òg

Age 14+ (Contains Swearing)

Your dignity – I’ve been trying to save

             your hypocrisy – I’ve been trying to conceal

             to right your wrongs

             and sing the songs of managing strife

             but life

             is no horse-taming


             system-blaming picnic.

             And I’m the Heidbummer today.”

Inspired by the bothy ballads of Scotland’s North East, playwright Elspeth Turner (The Idiot at the Wall, 2012) and acclaimed director Matthew Lenton (Vanishing Point) explore the fraying boundaries between past, present, and future. Weaving poetry, Doric, wild horses, and song, this courageous new play deftly wrestles with tradition, power, and the loneliness of modern life.
