Following on from the hugely successful production of “Persevere”, part of Out of the Blue’s Gretna 100 Project, “Tales From The Hanging Captain” sees Active Inquiry and Strange Town join forces again to explore the history 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 ‘Darrien Scheme’, and the strikes of 1913 unfold.
