This play has grown around the theme of Hans Christian Andersen’s The Wild Swans. The youngest swan, grown up and transformed once more into a man, is still left with a swan’s wing. Could he ever feel human again? Could he forget the freedom of the sky? Here, set in 16th Century Scotland, is his story. With a magical mixture of witchcraft and high adventure, the exploits of Alasdair, Fenella and the mercenary Ewen are funny, exciting and tragic. Their dealings with cattle-rustlers, with a Spaewife, with the revolting and evil Bocan makes for an entertaining cocktail for children and adults alike.
