About Nests

Written by “remarkable” (Scotsman) Xana Marwick.

‘You’ve chosen to take yourself away from things but me, I’m invisible.’

A frightened, starving boy and his only friend, a crow, encounter a man on the edge of society trying to forget his past. Their meeting begins a surreal journey where magical realism meets real-life media broadcast on life in present day UK.

Nests is a contemporary tale for Scotland’s Year of Young People that questions how our society treats the young and vulnerable. It questions the stories we tell ourselves and the impact we all have on each other.

Each of us should have someone looking out for us. Each of us should have someone who takes responsibility for us. Each of us should have someone who loves us. But do we?

For audiences of adults and young people over the age of 12.

Note: Contains strong language.

Written by Xana Marwick
Directed by Heather Fulton

Lighting Design by Gerron Stewart
Sound Design by Matt Elliot & Dougal Marwick

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Nests are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
