By Raymond Wilson, presented by All the Figs, and supported by The National Lottery through Creative Scotland.
Flitting between romantic obsession and botanical description, this semi-autobiographical piece by Raymond Wilson offers a raw, moving and genuinely humorous exploration of healthy masculinity, self-worth and working-class access to nature. Through his friendship with Flo and her modern nomadic lifestyle, Raymond attempts to escape the greyness of the Glasgow scheme into Scotland’s natural world, with some unflinching self-reflection along the way. Developed through the Village Storytelling Festival 2022.
