Day 316 - Islander, a musical for radio
I saw this two-man musical - with music and lyrics by Perth born and raised Finn Anderson - back in the last Edinburgh Fringe (2019) and was totally delighted by it. Surprising, funny, moving - needless to say we had hoped to bring it to Perth Theatre in the Autumn of 2020. We hope to welcome it when we return. But in the meantime, here is an opportunity to listen to this lovely, absorbing tale for all ages.

The two-hander female cast sing all the songs, perform a whole host of characters, while weaving, building and layering their voices to create all the sound effects into an expansive, ethereal soundscape for the ears and imagination. Performed and sung by Kirsty Findlay and Bethany Tennick
