The Drift, at the Traverse Theatre, is a beautiful story of love, loss and bereavement, as well as a searingly honest portrayal of growing up mixed-race in Scotland.
About The Drift
Sorry, but this event has been and gone!
The Drift is a journey through history, through Scottishness, through belonging, and through grief. An autobiographical, poetic spoken word show, The Drift sees writer and performer Hannah Lavery exploring her legacy of being “mixed” in Scotland, left to her by her father and mother and their respective journeys.
A beautiful story of love, loss and bereavement, as well as a searingly honest portrayal of growing up mixed-race in Scotland, The Drift challenges us to see Scottish history and our public memory in a different light.
Tour supported by Flint & Pitch and The Workers Theatre with the Coalition of Racial Equality and Rights as part of Black History Month 2019.
