Part of a trilogy of theatre pieces exploring the borderlands between England and Scotland, Gretna gives a taster of a new collaboration between myself, Théâtre Volière and Lori Watson.
Gretna is an ongoing project exploring the culture of the region from the perspective of the women so often written out of its history. The actors of the Marchland Arms Company present a staging of Katie’s recent poetry for the project, inspired by her visits to the area around Gretna Green, and accompanied by Lori’s music.
The poetry explored the history of women in and around Gretna Green, from the Devil’s Porridge munitions factory workers at Eastriggs, to brides eloping across the border.
