Stoirm Òg in co-production
with Cumbernauld Theatre presents

A new play by Elspeth Turner

Directed by Matthew Lenton

             Your dignity – I’ve been trying to save
             your hypocrisy – I’ve been trying to conceal
               to right your wrongs
             and sing the songs of managing strife
             but life
             is no horse-taming
             system-blaming picnic.
             And I’m the Heidbummer today.’

Inspired by the bothy ballads of Scotland’s North East, playwright Elspeth Turner (The Idiot at the Wall, 2012) and acclaimed director Matthew Lenton (Vanishing Point) explore the fraying boundaries between past, present, and future. Weaving poetry, Doric, wild horses, and song, this courageous new play deftly wrestles with tradition, power, and the loneliness of modern life.
