Description

Sit down, I’ll tell you a story. Maggie Osborne made a deal with the devil to bring prosperity to the high street, and built a business in just one night with Auld Horny himself. The deal was a cracker and the town boomed, so the people burnt Maggie alive. The deal broke though and whilst I’m not saying any of this is true… just look at the state of Scotland's high streets now. Call a town meeting! A highly physical storytelling performance from Shona Cowie, with original live music from accordionist Neil Sutcliffe.

I wasn’t sure what to expect from a storytelling show, but what a treat I was in for.. for 55 mins I was transported to a different place, so vividly described, that I could feel the chill of the cold air blowing the big door shut, I could smell the old market and the bucket of fish heads.. the show was energetic, engaging and I really really just enjoyed somebody telling me a story, something I’ve not experienced in that same way since being a kid , the fact the show had so many different messages/delivery methods and is based on true characters, it was amazing!
