Morag, You're a Long Time Deid


A UK premiere co-produced by Claire Love Wilson and Peter Lorenz with the frank theatre & An Tobar and Mull Theatre

Sam, Morag’s Canadian granddaughter, inherits not only a piano but also the mystery of her Scottish granny’s queerness. This experimental musical playfully warps, disrupts and reconfigures traditional Scottish ballads to tell old stories anew.

This dynamic, experimental musical is a love letter to ancestors who "didn't fit" that playfully warps, disrupts and reconfigures traditional Scottish ballad singing. Audiences are invited on a journey where original compositions are interwoven with electronic loops to tell old stories anew.
