‘Skerryvore: a tale of terror’ – a haunting tale investigating a supernatural mystery

Incredible performances bring the story to life with effective visual and audible effects taking us back to the 18th Century

‘Strange things do sometimes occur here’

Skerryvore is a haunting tale investigating the supernatural mystery of the lost lighthouse men of a small Scottish island. Set in 1876, the play is based on a true story where the audience, acting as London scholars, bear witness to a woman’s testimony surrounding the catastrophe that had occurred many year’s prior.

The performance is presented as a series of medical lectures where Mary, the lone survivor now under the care of Professor Barret, takes us on a journey through her partial consciousness as she retreads the tainted ground that had left such a scarring mark on her soul. She maneuvers through her memories with a childlike innocence, revelling in the sight of her forgotten playground, but distinctly aware that it’s all building towards something far more sinister.

The incredible performances from Bill Allender (Professor Barrett) and Rachel McCarron (Mary Campbell) bring the story to life with effective visual and audible effects taking us back to the 18th Century. One that will leave you questioning fiction and reality.
