History is written by the victors, why the victors? Because Victor is a man's name. Armor, A Herstory Of The Scottish Bard tells the story of the women in Robert Burns' life. Namely his wife Jean Armour and mistress Nancy Macelhose and of their infamous meeting in Edinburgh years after the Bards death.
This beautiful new production is the first from female-led theatre company Fearless Players and includes original composition woven with some of Burn’s greatest works. Chris Quilietti sat down with the show’s creators, writer/composer Shonagh Murry and Producer/cast member Lydia Davidson to talk about giving a voice to the women behind the bard and creating platforms for female creatives.
