The Drift

The Drift, at the Tron Theatre, is a beautiful story of love, loss and bereavement, as well as a searingly honest portrayal of growing up mixed-race in Scotland.

The Drift

About The Drift

An autobiographical, poetic spoken word show, The Drift sees writer and performer Hannah Lavery exploring her legacy of being “mixed” in Scotland left to her by her father and mother and their respective journeys. A beautiful story of love, loss and bereavement, as well as a searingly honest portrayal of growing up mixed-race in Scotland, The Drift challenges us to see Scottish history and our public memory in a different light.

The Drift was originally performed and developed as part of the Flint and Pitch New Voices programme (produced & programmed by Jenny Lindsay), before being further developed as part of the Workers Theatre Megaphone Residency and finally through the National Theatre of Scotland’s Just Start Here Festival and Engine Room programme – all under the mentorship and direction of Jenny Lindsay. It was last developed and performed as a preview at the Tron Theatre as part of Black History Month 2018 under the direction of Eve Nicol.

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