Lost at Sea is an epic tale spanning forty years of the fishing industry through the eyes of one family and the surrounding community.
Fishing is still the most dangerous job in the UK – there is fifty times more risk of being killed than in any other profession. This is the story of two brothers experiencing the extremes of the industry: one is lost to the ocean, the other makes his fortune.
Lost at Sea features the verbatim voices of fishermen and their families with an added element of ocean mythology. Inspired by the loss of Morna’s own father to the ocean, it is a personal tribute to the fishing communities of the North East of Scotland.
The reading will be followed by a Q&A with the writer, director and actors.
