In The Weeds: An Tobar and Mull Theatre

An Tobar and Mull Theatre present In The Weeds By Joseph Wilde
Directed by Rebecca Atkinson-Lord

Kazumi is hunting a sea monster.
Arriving on a remote Hebridean island, he meets Coblaith, a local woman whose family have lived there for generations. When she offers to help him find the mythical creature that he believes drowned his family, their relationship blossoms. But there’s something strange about Cob’s obsessive affection for the lochs and something even stranger about the way the other islanders treat her.
Suspicious of his new lover, Kazumi’s imagination gets the better of him. Could it be that Coblaith is the mythical creature he has been searching for? Or are humans the real monsters after all?
Exploring island identity and our troubled relationship to the natural environment, this new commission from award winning playwright Joseph Wilde is a gothic thriller about who gets to claim ownership of the land we all live on.
