Inspired by the bothy ballads of Scotlands 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. Your dignity " Ive been trying to save/ your hypocrisy " Ive been trying to conceal/ to right your wrongs/ and sing the songs of managing strife/ but life/ is no horse-taming/ woman-shaming/ system-blaming picnic./ And Im the Heidbummer today.
