Come in. Shut the door. Open the box. What’s inside? A museum curator finds hidden letters binding Glenesk to Canada’s Klondike gold rush. But should she tell their intimate secrets?
A true tale of sewing and 1900s sexting as revealed by the Curator, the Musician and the Man, Miss Lindsay’s Secret explores the Curator’s dilemma in finding, revealing and becoming too involved in this intimate tale of a Scottish seamstress.
The show transcends time and place, using original live music and historical material to bind the past to the present, Scotland to the world, and in this time of invaded privacy, questions the morality of reading such private mail and turning it into a play.
“An outstanding and heartbreakingly beautiful play” **** – Jenny Gilruth, Scottish Culture Minister
