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 

Conceived and directed by Amy Draper (RSC). Book by Stewart Melton (National Theatre of Greece). Music and lyrics by Finn Anderson (Off West End Award nominated).

Originally developed in association with Comar
