Islander, a devised a capella musical for two actresses, toured Scotland in September 2018.

This August it played at the Paines Plough Roundabout at the Edinburgh Fringe as part of Made in Scotland and subsequently transferred to Southwark Playhouse. Reviews and production shots to follow soon!

First workshopped at Comar on the beautiful Isle of Mull in March 2017, we were thrilled to receive Creative Scotland funding to make the full show. The piece tells the story of an Islander girl in a time of conflict, and explores identity – personal, island, and national. Suitable for 7+.

The show has gone very well at Edinburgh and we’re hoping to give it a future life so do get in touch if you can help!
