Blood and Gold by Mara Menzies
Part of the Made in Scotland Showcase
Ancient mythology and modern storytelling collide in a contemporary exploration of the legacy of colonialism and slavery by award-winning Scottish Kenyan storyteller Mara Menzies. A dying mother gives her daughter a box containing three clues to a priceless treasure. This sets in motion a journey filled with humour and tragedy that considers the importance of ritual, identity and belonging.
'The word "storytelling" can't quite portray the fullness of the experience that you have' ***** (MumbleTheatre.net).
