Perth Theatre at Horsecross Arts and Morna Young present
‘Lost at Sea’ by Morna Young
“The untold war oh man versus the elements. Oh, I’ll tell it to ye. The tale o the fishermen fightin the ocean. Yer in for a rough ride.”
A storm is brewing in a small fishing village. A young woman returns home, searching for answers about her father’s death. But as she begins to weave together the strands of her past, a mysterious force unravels family secrets.
LOST AT SEA journeys through a labyrinth of myth and memory in an epic tale spanning forty years of the fishing industry. Featuring the voices of fishermen and their families in their own words - with music, songs and Scots language - it is the lyrical and powerfully evocative story of a North-East fishing family.
Inspired by the loss of playwright Morna Young’s fisherman father, LOST AT SEA is a personal tribute to the fishing communities of Scotland.
LOST AT SEA is suitable for ages 12+
