Lost At Sea – On Tour

“The untold war o man versus the elements. Oh, I’ll tell it tae ye. The tale oh the fishermen fightin the ocean. Yer in for a rough ride.”

 Morna Young’s first play Lost at Sea, written in 2012, was inspired by the loss of her father when she was a child. Featuring the voices of fishermen and their families in their own words – with music, songs and Scots language – Lost at Sea is the lyrical and powerfully evocative story of a North-East fishing family.

 Lost at Sea will premiere at Perth Theatre – Horsecross on 27th April 2019 before touring to:

 Mon 6 + Tue 7 May | Dundee Rep Theatre, Dundee 

Thu 9 – Sat 11 May | His Majesty’s Theatre, Aberdeen

Thu 16 – Sat 18 May | Eden Court, Inverness 

Mon 20 – Wed 22 May | Kings Theatre, Edinburgh 

Fri 24 May | D&G Arts Festival, Easterbrook Hall, Dumfries 

 Directed by Ian Brown (formerly Artistic Director of Traverse and West Yorkshire Playhouse), the all-Scottish cast of well-known faces includes Tam Dean Burn (Outlaw King, River City, Moon Dogs) at the helm as the Skipper. Joining him are Gerry Mulgrew as Billy, Kim Gerard as Eve, Ali Craig as Jock, Helen McAlpine as Kath, Andy Clark as Kevin and Jennifer Black as Meg. Thoren Ferguson from Scottish band The Jacobites joins the company as Mate/Musician and Sophia McLean plays Shona in her first major Scottish role.
