Evocative, innovative, shape-shifting drama, sculpted from the poetry, music and songs of Hamish Henderson (1919-2002). A vital, new perspective on this revolutionary European intellect and father of Scottish folk revival presented in dynamic, dramatic fusion. Exhilarating ensemble theatre enacting and embracing Henderson’s vision of a people’s culture: a new democratic art for here and now. ‘One of the most thrilling evenings in the theatre I’ve had for years... don’t miss it, it’s brilliant. If I could give it six stars, I would!’ (TheWeeReview.com). ‘Ebullient encapsulation of Henderson's socially engaged internationalist imagination’ (Herald).
