Islander - a new musical for families embarks on full Scottish tour
Helen Milne productions in association with Mull theatre present Islander, a new musical blending mythic fantasy with epic storytelling, with original music from Scottish composer and songwriter Finn Anderson.
The story centres around a young girl, Eilidh. Eilidh has never left her island. She sees the same people, has the same conversations, lives the same day over and over. Watching from the cliffs, she dreams of the Bigland over the sea. Then, when a boy from faraway is washed up on the shore, her life is changed forever.
Director Amy Draper and writer Stewart Melton use Eilidh’s story to explore themes of war, migration, and identity. Music is performed and recorded live by the cast, skilfully using looping technology to create an expansive, ethereal soundscape throughout.
