About Nests

Suitable for ages 12+

‘You’ve chosen to take yourself away from things but me, I’m invisible.’

A frightened, starving boy, and his only friend, a crow, encounter a man on the edge of society trying to forget his past.

Their meeting begins a surreal journey where magical realism meets real-life media broadcast on life in present day UK.

Nests is a fairy-tale for Scotland’s Year of Young People that questions how our society treats the young and vulnerable. It questions the stories we tell ourselves and the impact we all have on each other.

*please note: a £1 service charge per transaction applies for bookings made by phone or online. There is no service charge for tickets purchased in person or for tickets booked by phone and later collected from the Box Office.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Nests are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
