Full Description

An exciting debut for a Hebridean writer at the Traverse Theatre, Edinburgh - a tough and funny play about two orphans from the city forcibly transplanted to the Islands. 1967. Alex and Mary are 'homers', sent from care homes in Glasgow to the islands - to live with a new family. They are thrown into the kaleidoscope of island life: the teacher who barks in a strange language; the Minister and his penchant for Elvis; Andrena with her fetish for Hebridean delicacies. Alex pushes his new dad too far and is sent back to Glasgow into the care of Mr Pig, a sadistic butcher. But Mary, back on the island, has troubles of her own, so Alex finds himself on the ferry again, slicing through the black mirror of the sea...Poignant, fantastical, and unflaggingly hilarious, Homers is a brilliant first full-length play by a poet and writer from Lewis in the Hebrides.
