A true classic of modern Scottish Theatre, and a haunting evocation of a lost way of life, Sue Glover's lyrical play with music and song follows six women land workers as they graft and dance their way through a year on a 19th Century Borders farm. Every ploughman had to provide a woman (a bondager) to work on the farm. If his wife was too busy with family, he hired a woman to work the fields and lodge in his home. Following these women through the passing of the seasons, we feel the rhythm of the land and the harshness, humour, hope and tragedy of those who worked upon it.Performers Cath Whitefield (Tottie), Pauline Lockhart (Maggie), Wendy Seager (Sara), Jayd Johnson (Liza), Charlene Boyd (Jenny), Nora Wardell (Ellen).
