A Six Inch Layer of Topsoil and The Fact it Rains is a night at the theatre that playfully weaves
verbatim extracts of conversations with the people of rural Perthshire together with music and song to paint a picture of a changing community made up of wonderful characters. We’ll hear from farmers young and old, migrant seasonal workers, climate change campaigners, Lairds and land owners, land reformers, politicians and families as we ask what it means to provide for the future, to nourish and sustain each other, and to live together on this land.
Performed by Melody Grove and Aly Macrae – original cast members of the National Theatre of Scotland’s hugely popular production The Strange Undoing of Prudencia Hart.
