Life on dry ground is not well suited to a Selkie
The Blue Room Theatre company has a history of promoting local talent and fostering artistic ambitions and collegiality, as per their new innovative Good Play Club.

They have supported and produced a series of plays over the next few months to establish new and emerging writers.

The first of these is a new play by Finn O'Branagáin (The Epic) named for the mythological creature from the Orkney Islands, the Selkie. In the water a seal and on the land the pelt peels off and they assume human form.

Selkie the play is about one, Rónnad, who 'feels the magnetic pull of the moon and the tide calling her home. Drying out, she is helpless and held captive in a body and a world which are not her own.'
