What's On

Feral

Ever wondered if you missed your chance to be wild?

Sonya has been spinning a lot of plates recently; she’s really good at it but she’s definitely not the untamed woman she thought she’d be by now. Sometimes she feels like a feral beast backed into a corner.  There’s no escaping social expectation and she fears she’s missed her chance.

In September 2017 Sonya headed off on a hitchhiking mission to Oban to find 60’s folk legend and notorious wild child Anne Briggs.  Sonya was drowning in domesticity and she thought Anne could swoop in and save her.

Feral asks why women are taking on more ‘mental load’ than ever before. Harnessing live music by The Greyhounds, storytelling and the odd party trick, Feral tells an intimate story with universal application, empowering audiences to make wilder choices.
