Lost at Sea - Festival Opening Night

Easterbrook Hall, Dumfries, DG1 4TA
Fri 24th May 2019
Presented by Perth Theatre at Horsecross Arts and Morna Young;

“The untold war oh man versus the elements. Oh, I’ll tell it to ye. The tale o the fishermen fightin the ocean. Yer in for a rough ride.”

A storm is brewing in a small fishing village. A young woman returns home, searching for answers about her father’s death. But as she begins to weave together the strands of her past, a mysterious force unravels family secrets.

LOST AT SEA journeys through a labyrinth of myth and memory in an epic tale spanning forty years of the fishing industry. Featuring the voices of fishermen and their families in their own words - with music, songs and Scots language - it is the lyrical and powerfully evocative story of a North-East fishing family.

Inspired by the loss of playwright Morna Young’s fisherman father, LOST AT SEA is a personal tribute to the fishing communities of Scotland.  Directed by Ian Brown
Directors Note: An incredible script in Burns own language this is a deeply relevant story of an industry that has shaped our shorelines.
