OCTOBER 20 – NOVEMBER 19, 2023

Leo K. Theater

Myth and reality collide when the tide washes a mysterious stranger onto the shore of Eilidh’s lonely island, changing her life forever. Join us for a musical showcase of epic storytelling, intimately staged with a contemporary Scottish folk-inspired score. Two actors embody a host of characters while weaving, building, and layering their voices using live looping technology. This internationally acclaimed hit will create an expansive, ethereal soundscape for the ears and imagination as Seattle Rep kicks off the North American Tour. 

This is a genuinely vibrant show, full of life

The Seattle Times

Every element of this wonderful show folds into every other element beautifully creating a fantastic world and a stellar evening.
