Come in. Shut the door. Open the box. What’s inside? Concealed for over a century, this intimate tale of a Scottish seamstress binds the gentle hills of Glenesk to Canada’s heady Klondike gold rush. Using original live music, drama and historical material from Glenesk Museum, a lively and moving local story, woven into Scotland’s national identity, reaches across time and continent. This compelling show grows from a deep respect for material culture, in an age when life stories are lost to the ether.
Written and performed by Maria MacDonell with Alan Finlayson and musician Georgina MacDonell Finlayson.
