The Idiot at the WallFirstBicycle
"Cursing the cream is one thing. But the air in a man’s lungs...that comes and goes as it pleases."
First Bicycle presents Elspeth Turner’s debut play, "The Idiot at the Wall".
Set in the wake of World War One, the story follows a Hebridean island community struggling for survival against the encroaching modern world.
Celebrating her personal island heritage, and blending English with Gaelic, Turner’s play traverses myth and reason to present a haunting tale resurrected for modern times. This production roots itself in traditional Hebridean storytelling, and offers an authentic new voice in Scottish theatre.
"A confident, gripping dramatic narrative, and a magnificent score of Hebridean song and music" - Joyce McMillan, The Scotsman
