About the event

“I never felt passionate about birds. And then…. I drove down here last night and a Barn Owl flew across my windscreen like a sift of wind through oatmeal, like a flaw in the glass. And I stopped and turned off the engine and listened. Nothing. Just the car ticking with heat. And then I heard them. The owls. Calling. The definition of night. They were there. It was good.”

On his return from his uncle’s funeral, Duncan Campbell begins the slow, sad process of working through his effects; but as he does so he finds within the ghostly confines of this remote coastal cottage the way into a world he never knew existed – the entrance into a life he never dared hope for; but this awareness brings with it costly choices and, most daunting of all, the possibility of real change.

This play by Nigel Forde will be performed by Andrew Harrison in the Gallery at Art & Soul.

“Beautifully comic… I cried with laughter.”

Simon Mayo

“It’s a great show! An enchanting evening.”

Sally Magnusson
