BAA’s Fiona Wood features in Vanishing Point’s The Metamorphosis: Unplugged, which will be touring venues around Scotland from 25th April.
The Metamorphosis: Unplugged is a warm-hearted, acoustic, cabaret-style retelling of Kafka’s story. Two excitable cleaners are tidying up the remains of a children’s party when they stumble across a copy of The Metamorphosis – the mysterious tale of a man who wakes up one morning to find he’s turned into a giant insect. Intrigued by the opening sentence they begin to reimagine the classic tale for our times, using the story to transform our view of the world.

Fiona Wood and Lisa Livingstone will appear in The Life and Adventures of Santa Claus, a theatrical film as part of a socially distanced outdoor Christmas installation experience in the gardens of Pitlochry Festival Theatre. The Life and Adventures of Santa Claus runs 1st – 23rd December.
‘It is Christmas Eve, and while most children are asleep, Alice has an idea to catch Santa Claus. Instead, she accidentally traps a Fairy in her bedroom who proceeds to tell Alice how Santa Claus came to be. There begins an incredible journey that takes us into the magical world of Wood Nymphs, Knooks, and Ryls. From the Forest of Burzee to the Laughing Valley and beyond. This is a Christmas story for the ages, for all ages.’

Through the fog a ship arrives in Leith docks, Mary Stuart, Queen of Scots steps ashore. She is 18 and on her young shoulders rest the hopes of the Catholic establishment of Europe. The Nation that receives her has just outlawed her church and its practices. Its leader is the radical cleric and protestant reformer, John Knox. Both believe themselves ordained by God. Both believe themselves beloved by their people. Both were exiled and returned home… but only one can make Scotland their own.
