Stoirm Og presents
Spectretown at ACT ABERDEEN
Inspired by the bothy ballads of Scotland’s North East, playwright Elspeth Turner (The Idiot at the Wall, 2012) and acclaimed director Matthew Lenton (Vanishing Point) explore the fraying boundaries between past, present, and future. Weaving poetry, Doric, wild horses, and song, this courageous new play deftly wrestles with tradition, power, and the loneliness of modern life
Stoirm Òg is a meeting place for powerful and honest acting,
courageous new writing, and big ideas.
Based in Scotland, we look to the riches of our music, history, poetry, languages and folklore as a point of origin in our work. We embrace these not as relics, but as compelling teachers. Re-interpreting this intangible heritage with theatricality and a contemporary pulse, we are building productions to be engines of progress
