Concealed for over a century the intimate story of a Scottish seamstress, Minnie Lindsay will be revealed binding the heady Klondike gold rush to the gentle hills of Glenesk.

Using narrative, music, drama and authentic historic material from the Glenesk Museum, this lively and moving performance grows from a deep respect for material culture in an age in which life stories are lost to the ether.

Maria MacDonell and Alan Finlayson and musician Georgina Finlayson take us on a story from the north-east of Scotland to the great wildernesses of the Yukon Territory.

Volunteer promoter Sue Robertson said: “This performance is suitable for age 12+ and lasts for one hour.

"There will be tea, coffee, soft drinks and ice cream on sale after the performance when there will also be time to ask questions of the actors who have also done the research into Miss Lindsay’s Secret and also have a news with the other audience members."

Tickets are £10 and £9 from Food for Thought and Chemist, New Deer 01771 644366/644217 or online from www.neatshows.org.uk and on the door.

Miss Lindsay’s Secret will be revealed on Sunday, February 16 in New Deer Hall at 3pm.
