A Slow Air

David Harrower

A Slow Air

Like any brother and sister, Morna and Athol have fond and not-so fond memories of their upbringing, differing views on their parents and definite opinions about each other. But Morna and Athol haven’t spoken a word to each other in fourteen years. When Morna’s son Joshua travels west to make contact with Athol he sets off, for all of them, a remarkable and life-changing series of events. 4.0 out of 5 based on 2 reviews

The Evening Standard

Fiona Mountford

Sam Marlowe

Harrower’s play, which premiered at the Tron, Glasgow in 2011, deals with the minutiae of ordinary lives and the duplicity of family memories, embedded in Scottish identity.
