‘Bondagers’ at the Royal Lyceum Theatre, Edinburgh

Pauline Lockhart will be appearing in ‘Bondagers’ at the Royal Lyceum Theatre, Edinburgh from 22nd October – 15th November. Pauline will be playing the role of Maggie.

Pauling LockhartA true classic of modern Scottish Theatre, and a haunting evocation of a lost way of life, Sue Glover’s lyrical play with music and song follows six women land workers as they graft and dance their way through a year on a 19th Century Borders farm.

Every ploughman had to provide a woman (a bondager) to work on the farm. If his wife was too busy with family, he hired a woman to work the fields and lodge in his home. Following these women  through the passing of the seasons, we feel the rhythm of the land and the harshness, humour, hope and tragedy of those who worked upon it.
