In the remote Scottish Highlands two women arrive at a former Crofters Hut in the deserted village of Coillie Ghille. When suddenly the weekend getaway takes an unexpected turn. Cut off from the modern world, Laura and Suzanne find themselves drawn into the dark history of the Croft and the lives that passed before them.
In this bold and haunting new play the present interweaves with the past as ancient tales surface and the terrifying truth lurking In the Croft is revealed.
Directed by award-winning director Philip Franks (The Habit of Art) and produced by The Original Theatre Company (The Habit of Art, The Night Watch, Birdsong), The Croft will be setting pulses racing this Spring.
Starring national treasure Gwen Taylor - best know to millions of fans as the star of the hit TV show Barbara. Her other notable television contributions include the BAFTA-nominated series A Bit of A Do as well as regular fixtures Ann Foster in Coronation Street and Peg in Heartbeat.
