A co-production between Pitlochry Festival Theatre and Firebrand Theatre Company in collaboration with Dr Kerri Andrews 

 “I believe it is the modern fashion to burn your bra, but I’d thrown mine away by 1914.” Nan Shepherd

Following the success of their podcast series, A Journey with Nan Shepherd, award-winning Firebrand’s richly entertaining, funny and moving new play uncovers the extraordinary, unconventional woman behind the glamorous portrait on the Scottish five-pound note.  

Directed by Richard Baron, whose previous Pitlochry Festival Theatre productions include Chicago, The Last Witch and Heritage.  

Spiced with poetry, humour and romance, the play reveals the untold story of how Nan Shepherd’s experiences as author, teacher, hillwalker and lover helped shape Scotland’s recent literary history; while also solving the mystery of why a manuscript of her ground-breaking masterpiece, The Living Mountain, lay forgotten in a drawer for over 30 years.
