by Ajay Close / original music by The Soutar Quartet

Madame Lozatska's musical seance is getting out of hand. While trying to contact the ghost of Scots poet William Soutar, she is hijacked by the unruly spirits of his friends, family, and rival poet Hugh McDiarmid. Her house band, too, is possessed: Soutar’s poems weave their way into the now-haunting, now-rousing jazz and folkinspired songs. A unique, fresh and very funny take on Soutar’s bitter-sweet life. Music created and performed by The Soutar Quartet of Debra Salem (vocals), Paul Harrison (piano) and Kevin MacKenzie (guitar), and featuring Patsy Reid (violin/cello). Jennifer Bates plays Madame Lozatska. Sandy Thomson (Poorboy) directs.
