In the remote Scottish Highlands two women arrive at a former Crofters Hut in the deserted village of Coillie Ghille. When the weekend getaway takes an unexpected turn, cut off from the modern world, Laura and Suzanne find themselves drawn into the dark history of the Croft and the lives that passed before them.

In this bold and haunting play, the present interweaves with the past as ancient tales surface and the terrifying truth lurking in the Croft is revealed.

Starring national treasure Gwen Taylor (Barbara, Coronation Street, Heartbeat) and Caroline Harker (Middlemarch, A Touch of Frost). Directed by award-winning director Philip Franks (The Habit of Art) and produced by The Original Theatre Company (The Habit of Art, Caroline’s Kitchen, Birdsong), The Croft will set your pulse racing this Spring.
