Miss Lindsay’s Secret
Saturday 15 February @ 7:30 pm
Johnshaven Village Hall
Saturday 15 February 2020
Come in. Shut the door. Open the Box. What’s inside? – an extraordinary intimate tale of a Scottish seamstress, never before told.
Minnie Lindsay’s tale, hidden in the Angus hills for over a century binds the gentle hills of Glenesk to the heady Klondike of Canada’s famous gold rush.
Using narrative, music, drama and authentic historic material from the Glenesk Museum, this lively and moving performance grows from a deep respect for material culture in an age in which life stories are lost to the ether.
It is a collaboration between experienced writer and performer Maria MacDonell with musician Georgina Finlayson and actor Alan Finlayson
Below are some comments from the audience:
“I am inarticulate to describe Saturday ‘s performance. The whole event was so, so poignant. The wide World deserves to hear about “Miss Lindsay’s Secret ‘ Thanks again for such a memorable experience.”
“Thank you for the show . I loved it . It simply has to go on tour.”
“I so loved your performance.”
“I was blown away by the detail and drama”
“Maria MacDonell’s writing and performance is compelling and heartfelt and she draws us into Miss Lindsay’s Secret with humour, only a little guilt and a compulsion to know what happens! Now that Miss Lindsay’s Secret is public it deserves to be heard by many and many would love to hear it.”
“The script, the story and the performances are so incredibly strong.”
