  • Scottish Storytelling Center 43-45 High Street Edinburgh EH1 1SR United Kingdom (map)

The story of a young man who witnesses the decline of his community and feels isolated and severed from his community, to him it seems the people are losing their purpose. Through his grandfather he is being taught the traditional ways of boat-building and this seems to contain something with more substance than the new way of life that has taken over. But when his grandfather dies the young man is set adrift on a journey that brings him more in touch with his inner self and the skills that may save his community. This performance is inspired by the stories of Neil Gunn and mythological tales of initiation. Told by Owen Pilgrim and music by Susanna Orr Holland
