After the Wilderness

BY MARTIN TRAVERS

This play explores the actions of native Scots speakers in the American Civil War.

The idea comes from a plaque in Lanark cemetery. Hugh Logan saved officers and crew from the USS Monitor as it sank in 1862 and was awarded the Medal of Honor.

This project is part of Braw Clan's Unlocking Scots programme - find out more about it here.

"Absolutely brilliant. I enjoyed every part as it unfolded. The three actors brought it to life."

SECRET WRAPPED IN LEAD

"Haunting and beautiful. Very atmospheric and the Scots had me hanging on every word."
