Three Sisters – A Story from the Climate Future (Day 2)

October 29, 2023 @ 2:00 pm 6:00 pm

From the renowned art and social justice group Platform, Three Sisters – A Story from the Climate Future, is a drama made specifically for Nithsdale and premiering at the Wild Goose Festival.

Created in New Abbey, just to the south of Dumfries, this immersive audio drama uses the structure and sensibility of Anton Chekhov’s Three Sisters to explore a thriving community set against the backdrop of social and ecological collapse.

It is a beautiful dissection of isolation, longing, and family ties set in the late 2030s. All within the echoing cries of the geese of Solway.

After 15 years of weathering storms, floods, and lockdowns in the Nith valley, will this community keep together? 

With a cast of 11 and recorded on location at Kirkconnell House in New Abbey, this audio drama will lead the audience through the story of the community and an experience of a remarkable building.

Using the highest quality sound design the piece will engage the audience in the most pressing questions of our times.How will we live under the impacts of climate change, with extreme weather events and so many forced to be refugees?

What shape will our altered society take? How will we love?
