You are made up from a mixture of myth and gene. You are part fable, part porridge.’

Growing up in 70s’ Scotland as the adopted mixed raced child of a Communist couple, young Jackie blossomed into an outspoken, talented poet. Then she decided to find her birth parents… From Nairn to Lagos, this production takes you on a journey full of heart, humour and deep emotions. Discover how we are shaped by the folk songs we hear as much as by the cells in our bodies.


Based on the book by Jackie Kay, adapted by Tanika Gupta.
