A new play by Vivien Jones and directed by Ken Gouge. Set in 1775, this is a story of migration. A family leave their home in Annan to sail to Nova Scotia in search of a better life. Their resilience and fortitude will resonate with the causes of modern-day mass emigration. A Buskers production in association with Fox and Hound Theatre company.
