Thursday 16th March at 7.30pm in Mackay's Hotel, Wick Just which uncharted waters is the Pictish naval commander steering his vessel into now? Well, seeing is believing - isn't it? In his autobiography, Time Bends, playwright Arthur Miller describes the vivid impression left on his six year-old mind when he saw his first 'movie', an open-air affair screened against a sheet in a make-shift theatre on the roof of the apartment block his Jewish family shared in Harlem, New York, around 1920. Miller is fascinated by the story flickering in front of him - and totally bewildered when the 'people' disappear: Now the light went out - the whole thing had lasted only ten minutes or so - and I asked my father where these people were'.

Words & Music at the Mill Theatre from Scotia Review for Caithness Arts Week Anyone who's spent this summer so far in the north must - like myself - be wondering what we've done to deserve such sunless July days. At times like these it's not hard to understand why our ancestors raised so many hefty stone geometries - if I thought it would appease the gods of weather, I too would gladly salute them, and beg for clemency.
