Description

Kazumi is hunting a sea monster. Arriving on a remote Hebridean island, he meets Coblaith, a local woman whose family have lived there for generations. But there's something strange about Cob's obsessive affection for the lochs and something even stranger about the way the other islanders treat her. Could it be that Coblaith is the mythical creature he has been searching for? Or are humans the real monsters after all? MadeInScotlandShowcase.com

Well done! First thriller we saw. Great story, well performed. Unique staging. very much enjoyed.

Anna Murray 3 days ago

Loved the opening northern lights, loch evoking sound and dark shadow of the woman in the water.

Terrific performances from both of the actors - characters felt very real and had depth. They depicted both the smallness of island life and breath of humankind’s problems.

And a sign of a good play is definitely that it triggers a good old chat about myths, the planet, who you believed over a pint for a good hour afterwards.

It’s really good, go and see it if you can. Fantastic performance and great setup, I can’t stress enough how good the play and actors are.
