My Friend Selma

Terra Incognita presents
MY FRIEND SELMA
Written and performed by Victoria Beesley
Directed by Joe Douglas
Monday 5th March 7.30pm
£12/£10/£5 U26s

Theatre

MY FRIEND SELMA is the remarkable real-life story of one little girl’s journey from war in Bosnia to safety in the UK. It is the tale of an incredible journey, of a world turned upside down, of loss, friendship, courage - and conkers. A remarkable performance by Victoria Beesley brings Selma’s story to life, a story in which a young, innocent child’s life, ripped apart by war, is turned around by the kindness of a stranger from another country and the blossoming friendship of his daughter.

"Absorbing, affecting but also robustly unsentimental"

With Jim Crumley

Jim Crumley is a nature writer, journalist and poet with some thirty books to his name, and is a passionate advocate for the wellbeing of our wildlife and wild places, and for the reintroduction of species such as sea eagles, beavers and wolves.

Imagine a 70’s Bruce Springsteen but with bagpipes and electronics in the E-Street band and you’re probably just about there!

Initially formed by 2 ex-Skipinnish members Robert Robertson (singer) and Ross Wilson (piano) Tide Lines emerged just over a year ago with the addition of Alasdair Turner (guitar & bagpipes) and Fergus Munro (drums). They released their Far Side of the World single in 2016 and its lyrical theme the connection between youth and location formed the basis for their first full length album: Dreams We Never Lost which featured original Waterboy and current Saw Doctor Anthony Thistlewaite was released in June 2017.

Artefacts Talk
A new exhibition at the National Museum of Scotland, PROJET JADE, which opened in May this year, showcases a rarely seen collection of Stone Age jade axeheads found in Scotland, most of which were created over 6,000 years ago and brought here around 4,000 years ago by immigrant French farmers. Discover the history of this natural stone, the people who owned these axeheads, and the history and beliefs of the Neolithic people responsible for the complicated process which turned jade into a precious and prized possession.

The tough Alpine rocks are difficult to work and it took over 1,000 hours to make a highly polished axehead.

We Are The Lions, Mr. Manager!’ is the remarkable story of Jayaben Desai, the inspirational leader of the 1976-78 Grunwick Film Processing Factory Strike and was recently included in BBC Radio 4’s Women’s Hour Power List as one of the women who’ve had the biggest impact on women’s lives over the past seventy years. She brought the issue of workplace exploitation and racism to the fore and not only stood up for workers’ rights and against oppression with selfless dedication but, with her steadfast resolve, she turned the Grunwick dispute into a national movement for human rights and dignity, inspiring future generations. “What you are running here is not a factory, it is a zoo. But in a zoo there are many types of animals. Some are monkeys who dance on your finger-tips, others are lions who can bite your head off. WE ARE THE LIONS, MR MANAGER!”
