About The Drift
The Drift is a journey through history, through Scottishness, through belonging, and through grief.
An autobiographical, poetic spoken word show, The Drift sees writer and performer Hannah Lavery exploring her legacy of being “mixed” in Scotland left to her by her father and mother and their respective journeys. A beautiful story of love, loss and bereavement, as well as a searingly honest portrayal of growing up mixed-race in Scotland, The Drift challenges us to see Scottish history and our public memory in a different light.
An eloquent exploration of identity in contemporary Scotland.
Nuanced...fragile, heartfelt and painfully honest tribute delivered with a raging calm.
Few works of Scottish theatre confront the hypocrisies of Scottish nationalism and identity so bluntly, and so well.
A soaring lyrical beauty.
