An Tobar and Mull Theatre present
In The Weeds
By Joseph Wilde
Directed by Rebecca Atkinson-Lord
Kazumi is hunting a sea monster.
Arriving on a remote Hebridean island, he meets Coblaith, a local woman whose family have lived there for generations. When she offers to help him find the mythical creature behind a family tragedy, their relationship blossoms. But theres something strange about Cobs obsessive affection for the lochs and something even stranger about the way the other islanders treat her. Although Cob insists that monsters are not real, Kazumi can't help but be swept away with suspicion until he almost becomes the monster himself.
Exploring island identity and our troubled relationship to the natural environment, this new commission from award winning playwright Joseph Wilde is a gothic thriller about who gets to claim ownership of the land we all live on.
