 OS MO CHIONN SHEINN AN UISEAG 


OS MO CHIONN SHEINN AN UISEAG a sgrìobh Eric I Dòmhnallach. Tha Màiri a cuimhneachadh air na lathaichean a bha i aig a’ sgadan. Bha i ann an criùtha de thriùir a bha a’ leantainn an iasgaich eadar Sealltainn agus bailtean mòra an iasgaich air taobh an ear Shasainn. Chaidh an scriobt a stèideachadh air còmhraidhean ri boireannaich à Leòdhas a bha ris an obair anns na 1920’s. Tha Mairi a’ mineachadh na h-obrach agus a’ suathadh air suidhichean anns a’ choimhearsanachd anns an latha anns a bheil sin.


Based on extensive interviews with the last surviving Herring Girls the play incorporates traditional songs and visual imagery into the telling of a life story.Mairi has regrets but no trace of self pity : rather an air of defiance , dignity and indomitable good humour as she looks back on life well lived.

The play has been performed at venues throughout the islands including Shawbost, Carloway, Ness and Eriskay and was broadcast on Radio Nan Gaidheal on New Years Eve 2011.  An English language version was broadcast on Isles FM in May 2013 and will be heard on other community stations later this year. See the full list of past performances click here.
