Nobel Laureate Alice Munro is the world’s greatest living short story writer.

As a centrepiece of the 2016 Book Festival, Stellar Quines and Edinburgh International Book Festival present the world premiere of a specially commissioned theatrical adaptation of two stories, taken from the author’s collection The View from Castle Rock.

These stories imagine the extraordinary experiences of her Scottish ancestors who sailed from Leith Docks in 1818 in the hope of a better life in Canada.

Acclaimed director Marilyn Imrie and award-winning Scottish playwright Linda McLean have created, in this word-for-word adaptation from Alice Munro’s text, a vibrant drama about the nineteenth century Scottish migrant experience.
