ANGUS MCPHEE - Weaver of Grass

ANGUS MCPHEE or MACPHEE was a crofter from Uist who spent almost 50 years in a Highland psychiatric hospital. During this time he chose not to speak - instead he wove a series of incredible costumes out of grass. These he hung on trees in the hospital grounds.

Angus - a review

Ian Tilton: Angus in Craig Dunain
The tour of 'Angus - Weaver of Grass' has been to Ullapool, Sutherland, and then the Black Isle over the past few days. Everywhere we have had a great reception. 

Mandy Haggith wrote a review of the Ullapool show at the MacPhail Centre on Thursday 19th. You can read this on the Northings website , and it has the tagline 'If you see only one piece of theatre this year, see this.' 

We've had several positive emails and comments on our Facebook page too, and the company report excellent feedback at the venues, and often very emotional audiences. 

After a few days well deserved break, the company move on - and travel back out to the islands later this week - appearing at An Lanntair in Stornoway, Lewis, on Thursday 26th. From there it's two shows on Skye and one on Raasay.
