Synopsis


Eilidh stares out to sea and dreams of a new life beyond her lonely island.


Myth and reality collide when the tide washes a mysterious stranger onto her beach, changing her life forever.


Epic storytelling, intimately staged with a contemporary Scottish folk-inspired score.


The two-hander cast of Kirsty Findlay (Olivier Award Nominated, Our Ladies of Perpetual Succour) and Bethany Tennick perform a whole host of characters, while weaving, building and layering their voices using looping technology to create an expansive, ethereal soundscape for the ears and imagination.
