The Idiot at the Wall - details announced!

First Bicycle in association with Falling Cutlery present Elspeth Turner’s debut play, The Idiot at the Wall.
“Cursing the cream is one thing. But the air in a man’s lungs….that comes and goes as it pleases.”

Set on a Hebridean island in the wake of World War One, this drama sees a traditional way of life struggle against the encroachment of the modern world, and challenges us to consider the power of prophecy over reason. Gaelic songs of the period enrich a score composed and arranged by Murdo Turner and Tim du Feu.

Celebrating her personal island heritage, and blending English with Gaelic, Turner’s play traverses myth and reality to present a haunting tale all but lost to the modern world. This production roots itself in traditional Hebridean storytelling, and offers an authentic new voice in Scottish theatre.
