A woman’s chronic somniphobia (fear of sleep) leads her to develop an elaborate system of rituals to survive the night. Inspired by the work of Aberdeen’s Royal Astronomer Sir David Gill, alchemy, fantasy and bats, this new work explores what happens to our sensory perception when familiar routines are under threat.

Co-commissioned by sound, Aberdeen Performing Arts and Òran Mór as part ofA Play, A Pie and A Pint Òran Mór Series.

(Also showing Tue 20, Wed 21, Thu 22 Oct 6-7pm & Thu 22 & Sat 24 Oct 1-2pm)

£10 (+booking fee) including a pint, glass of wine or soft drink and a pie or veggie option.
