Miss Lindsay’s Secret - The Yukon Letters

Swallow Theatre
In person event
Sun 26 Sep
14:00 UK

Concealed for over a century, this intimate tale of a Scottish seamstress binds the gentle hills of Glenesk to Canada’s heady Klondike goldrush.

Using original live music, drama and historical material from the Glenesk Museum, a lively and moving local story, woven into Scotland’s national identity, reaches across time and continent. 

This compelling show grows from a deep respect for material culture, in an age when life stories are lost to the ether.

Written and performed by Maria MacDonell with Alan Finlayson and musician Georgina MacDonell Finlayson.

To be performed inside the theatre auditorium, with social distancing.

Tickets £13.50

Running time approximately 60 minutes (no interval)

Age guidance: 12+

Tickets for this event are being sold externally, by Swallow Theatre and can be bought HERE
