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.

This blog follows the progress of HORSE + BAMBOO THEATRE as they develop and tour a show about Angus....

Angus rides again

Back from a great break in Caceres, Spain, and it was straight into sorting through the 50  or so applications for audition to replace Fran Merriman in the 2013 tour of Angus. Good to see such a high quality of applicant - which means that it has been difficult selecting just the 7 candidates, and a number of really excellent performers had to be rejected because, after discussions with Esther, it's now clear that the person has to be a driver since we're touring with two vehicles. 

There's also the beginning of the tour itinerary appearing. For anyone interested Esther is putting it up on our website as things develop.
