Third Angel presents

Cape Wrath

An epic journey in a stationary minibus


Wednesday 14 - Saturday 17 May 2014 Download Calendar


This performance will take place in a minibus at the Theatre.

After he retired, my Grandad went on a trip from the Midlands up to Cape Wrath, the most north-westerly point of his native Scotland. He sat, looked at the sea, and thought about his life. Then he got up and went home. Over 20 years later, I got on a coach and followed in his footsteps. This is what I learned.

Third Angel presents a story of family, of fellow travellers, of whisky and chocolate, and of the longest bus journey in Britain, told to an audience of just 14 in each performance. Completely sold out for its run at the Edinburgh Fringe in 2013, Cape Wrath is heartfelt, moving and funny. A compellingly intimate journey to the edge of the island.
