The Way Ahead

Peter Mieville

These performances have been rescheduled from the original run dates of 6th to the 10th December 2022. 

The Way Ahead
centres around a couple - one an actress/composer, the other a playwright, struggling with their relationship - who are on a quest to find the secret ingredient that allows a work to stand the test of time.

Can it be found? BE SURPRISED.

A strange encounter forces them to face hidden truths. A sacrifice must be made.

The play is set in the north west Highlands with a semi-mythical feel, and has surreal elements.

It explores different times/spaces, memory and the nature of relationship, with humour and compassion.

An uplifting journey into other worlds? BE PREPARED.


Wed 5 July at 7:00pm
Thu 6 July at 7:00pm
Fri 7 July at 7:00pm
Sat 8 July at 7:00pm
