Stories from Leith Docks, of voyages, misadventure, struggle and solidarity

Following the hugely successful production of “Persevere”, part of last year’s Gretna 100 Project, Active Inquiry’s Flashback Drama group and Strange Town Young Company join forces again to explore the history of Leith docks. This inspirational play reflects some of the hidden stories and voices of Leith docks. Set in the fictional Leith pub, ‘The Hanging Captain’, the audience will be taken on a voyage through time, as stories of the Dockers’ involvement in the whaling industry, the ‘Darien Scheme’ and the strikes of 1913 unfold.
