Lost at Sea by Morna Young (Scottish Tour)

'The untold war oh man versus the elements. Oh, I'll tell it to ye. The tale o the fishermen fightin the ocean. Yer in for a rough ride.'

A storm is brewing in a small fishing village. A young woman returns home, searching for answers about her father's death. But as she begins to weave together the strands of her past, a mysterious force unravels family secrets.

Lost at Sea journeys through a labyrinth of myth and memory in an epic tale spanning forty years of the fishing industry. Featuring the voices of fishermen and their families in their own words - with music, songs and Scots language - it is the lyrical and powerfully evocative story of a North-East fishing family. 

Inspired by the loss of playwright Morna Young's fisherman father,  Lost at Sea is a personal tribute to the fishing communities of Scotland.
