David McNeish’s new play brings to the fore the mother of Magnus, Thora, a name mentioned in the sagas but about whom little is known. Here, in her old age, Thora tells of her own life and its intersection with the story of her son before and after his martyrdom: the hardships, the violence, the duty and the pain. This intense, powerful and poetic two hander adds a new dimension to a familiar story. After her award-winning film The Storm Watchers, Gerda Stevenson returns to direct this exciting new drama.
