VISION MECHANICS AND NORDLAND VISUAL THEATRE PRESENT DRIFT
Drift is inspired by the true story of Shetland crofter, Betty Mouat, who in 1886, aged 61, was the only passenger on the coastal cutter Columbine which left Grutness bound for Lerwick. When a storm grounded the boat in Norway with the loss of the crew, Miss Mouat miraculously survived and returned to Shetland, a folk hero. Betty’s story is told via headphones in an exquisite Shetland song-cycle, with music by Eddie Maguire, words by playwright Judith Adams and vocals by Gerda Stevenson.
