The Return

' ... the story is told in a glorious, beautifully-balanced combination of strong, spare dialogue, eloquent movement, and haunting Languedoc song ...'

Joyce McMillan, The Scotsman, 2018


'The cast of three bring equal strength to this tale of birth, death and survival that is ancient and rustic yet so deeply human that it seeps in to modern bones.'

Irene Brown, Edinburgh Review, 2016

Ellie will be working on a Partner Project with Eden Court, which will explore current issues around language, land, identity and exile in the Highlands and Islands and to write the script for a modern play with songs.
