“Told entirely in an exhilarating Scots dialect and every word was as toothsome as a toasted teacake… A story never tasted so good.”

★★★★★ Argus Angel Award Winner, Brighton Festival 2015
★★★★★ Edinburgh Guide 

A contemporary take on folk and fairytale storytelling traditions, Sarah Cameron’s towering solo performance is a surreal ballad populated with larger than life characters.

Told in a rich and saucy Scots dialect with physical verve, a wee dram of whisky to oil the way and a musical score that rolls in like mist over the hills. The Red Chair sees acclaimed Scottish performer Sarah Cameron steer us through a landscape of twisted reason, extreme compulsion and eye watering complacency, where domestic drudgery happens on an operatic scale and a father's dereliction of duty reaches epic proportions.

The Red Chair is based on Sarah’s original book that had its first public reading as part of The House of Fairytales at the Port Eliot Festival. It lies somewhere between a Grimm’s Tale, an absurdist ghost story and a parent’s guide on how not to bring up children.

Suitable for everyone aged 14+ 

“The quality of the performance is astonishing and unforgettable.”
