Presented in association with the Traverse Theatre.
Featuring Alison McFarlane, David Rankine and Elspeth Turner.
Ronnat and Brigid live alone on a tiny island where they trade with the monastery across the water. The delicate equilibrium of their lives is threatened when a man washes up on the beach seeking work and shelter.
Set on Eilean nam Ban in the Sound of Iona, Mischief envisages the lives of two women who would never have featured in written histories of their time.
Ellie Stewart wrote Mischief on placement with the Traverse Theatre and BBC Writersroom 10. She’s currently working on Gala (set in West Lothian), Hope and Joy (about a woman who slept with a swan) and Le Retour (a play about love and identity).
