Soup And A Story
Adapted from Linmill Stories by Robert McLellan
Working in partnership with lunch clubs for older people in rural South Lanarkshire, Soup And A Story provides warmth, a nutritious free meal and a live performance of Robert McLellan's Linmill Stories by a professional actor.Based on the author’s experience of growing up on his grandparents’ fruit farm near Lanark a century ago, the Linmill Stories give us a priceless insight into a vanished world. Writer Donald Campbell said "Robert McLellan wasn’t just a playwright, he was something else – something different, something special." The same applies to rural older people in Clydesdale and this project is designed to celebrate them.Contact for booking details.Braw Clan is delighted to receive funding for Soup And A Story from Clyde Wind Farm and SSE Renewables, allowing us to team up with lunch clubs in Biggar and Roberton.
