EPUB £9.99£7.99

A wild and fantastical tale set in nineteenth-century north-east Scotland.

Winner of the first ever Peggy Ramsay Award

Down-on-her-luck, out-of-work actress Harriet and her family are wandering the roads of Scotland looking for food, shelter, and the opportunity to perform. But they are not the only ones travelling the highways and byways – there's tinker and storyteller Bidie along with her family, always looking for a break; and the dangerously beguiling stranger Nick, whose presence on the road just might be more of a curse than a blessing...

Press Quotes

'a wild rumbustious mix of fantasy and fable, it has all the rough edges and monstrous scope of a work of genius – frighteningly good'

Scotsman

'a vigorous and appealing play about the travails of Harriet, an early 19th-century actress, and her family – this play reveals the life of an actress as an astonishing test of physical stamina'
