Millennial woman, Sarah Grant, struggles to live up to the legacy of her Grandmother, the “Oracle of Glasgow”: she who sees all, hears all, tells all.
As a modern storyteller, Sarah tries (and fails) to translate traditional storytelling onto platforms like the family WhatsApp group chat, TikTok, marketing adverts and many more. How can the lessons learned at our ancestors’ knees survive in the digital world? Does the legacy of women passing down stories end with the current generation?
Oracles is a story about family, legacy, womanhood and traditional storytelling, grounded in a mix of traditional storytelling and spoken word.
