Broohas Theatre Company

SUMMARY

Nobel winning economist Isobel is hiding from her big ideas on a small Orkney farm, hoping for a quiet life. Unfortunately for her the farmhouse has another tenant: an ancient shapeshifting troll who is determined to reclaim his land.

Middle-aged sculptor Stanley spends her days making questionable art in her London studio, broadcasting her every move on a webcam. In between dealing with her mother’s receipts and worrying about her lifestyle, Stan’s accountant daughter Barbara dreams of another kind of existence.

When Isobel decides to commission a sculpture, all four lives intertwine, causing each of them to question what they believe in.

The script began as a play reading in Theatre West’s 2010 season and is being produced by Broohas, who return to the Alma following their productions of ‘Lost Luggage’ and ‘The Pottery Class’ in 2011.
