Lowland: A play for your ears in two chapters

Launching Thursday 10th December at 7.30pm on The Stove Network Podcast, and Part 2 coming Friday 11th December at 7.30pm.

“Barnside is sinking and its residents are ready to revolt. As the storm gathers and darkens, the local council have a plan to share. Only, not everything is as it seems and sooner or later, something’s going to give…”
An audio play in two acts, inspired by over 500 postcards reflecting on life in Dumfries written by Doonhamers. Lowland: The Play features a community cast, devised through collaboration with local writers’ groups, communities and members of the local council, Lowland is the tale of a consultation gone wrong.
As Angela, a council officer, prepares for a consultation, one year in the making, her boss throws a curve ball, eradicating all her best intentions, leaving her and her assistants in disarray and woefully unprepared. As a storm rages on outside, a community prepares a coup d’état…
Lowland is a dark comedy, offering a satirical look at the nature of community, power, local democracy and belonging.
Initially due to be performed in Dumfries, Langholm and Moniaive in March 2020, the play has been re-imagined as a podcast play in two chapters due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
