Bing Bremner (LAC Drama Programmer) writes.
Breathtaking, riveting and marvellous is how professional reviewers have described Erin Layton&#38;#39;s performance in her self-penned play Magdalen and I was absolutely stunned by the production and couldn&#38;#39;t be prouder of Lyth Art Centre for giving you the opportunity to see this truly outstanding play. My, but you are in for a treat! And we are delighted to announce that Erin and her director Julie Kline are flying over from NYC to spend a week&#39;s residency at LAC working on their next production entitled The Immigrants along with Scottish musician Fraser Fifield so we will all have the opportunity to see this gifted actress in a second production a week later.
Magdalen had attracted international success in the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in 2015 and 2016 and the Fringe ENCORE OffBroadway series at New York Citys SoHo Playhouse. It vividly depicts the little-known stories of the women and girls who were sent to wash away their sins in commercial laundries run by orders of nuns in mid-twentieth century Ireland. Their lives are vividly revealed in Erin Laytons compelling multi-character solo play.
This stunning performance swiftly transitions in and out of time periods, embodying with ease all of the many disparate characters (Huffington Post).
The highest level of performance

The ancient folklore tradition of ‘buying the wind' was common across Caithness and the fishing routes of the North Atlantic. The tradition involved sailors purchasing 3 knots of thread, rope or fabric, to be undone as wind is required, but the mariner is instructed on no account to untie the third knot, as it may start a hurricane.
