What's On


Ever wondered if you missed your chance to be wild?  Sonya lives in a terraced house with her partner and kids. She does a lot of recycling and worrying. She’s an artist and loves swimming outdoors but at 35 years old, she’s definitely not the wild woman she thought she’d be. Frustrated by the ‘mental load’ of domestic life, she fears she’s missed her chance.

In 2017, Sonya and her friend, head off on a hitchhiking mission to Oban to find 60’s folk legend, notorious wild child and their long-time heroine, Anne Briggs.  Sonya wants to ask Anne what drives people to take risks, what really happens when you walk out of your life and what do ‘wild women’ do as they grow older. Feral is Sonya’s personal journey to unravel and compare her daydreams to the reality of social conditioning.”
