Hannah Lavery’s The Drift set for Scottish tour

Full dates for The Drift, Hannah Lavery’s poetic and powerful spoken-word show, have been announced today. The show, directed by Eve Nicol and designed by Kirstie Currie, will visit Aberdeen, Tobemory, Hawick, Edinburgh and Glasgow from 2 to 12 October 2019 in a special tour as part of Black History Month.

Written and performed by Hannah Lavery, The Drift is a captivating piece of spoken word performance gravitating around urgent issues of race and identity, which sees Lavery exploring her legacy of growing up mixed-race in Scotland, left to her by her father and his mother, and their respective journeys.

The tour follows a special sold-out performance in Glasgow in October 2018, and an original presentation at the National Theatre of Scotland’s pop-up weekend festival Just Start Here in January 2018. The Drift has been developed through the Company’s Engine Room programme of unique development opportunities for emerging Scottish artists, from a work-in-progress through to a small-scale production.
