Most recently I have been performing with Horse + Bamboo, touring the Outer Hebrides and Highlands their latest show 'Angus - Weaver of Grass'.  The show also spent two weeks at the Scottish Storytelling Theatre, Royal Mile at The Fringe.

REVIEW NORTHINGS WEBSITE:

"If you see one piece of theatre this year, see this. It is a compassionate performance, telling the life story of Angus MacPhee, who was born and died on South Uist, but in between suffered the worst that British society could offer to a person with mental health problems. But this is not just a story about suffering, it’s about dignity and the healing power of art"
