A father and his two sons are lost at sea.

Keep busy, eh? Hope we'll get a body, mebbe. The widden spoon. A knock on the door wi a wooden spoon.

Three women adapt to their lives as widows. Kitty can't stop knitting. Alison needs looking after. Sylvia wants to forget. Then, one day, a knock on the door. A body has been found. One body, three women. Who does it belong to?

Set in the north of Scotland, 'Netting' is a story of finding closure after unimaginable loss.

Morna Young won a New Playwright's Award 2014. She has performed extracts of her work at the Scottish Parliament and the European Authors' Festival.

"Morna Young's writing is powerfully rooted in their immediate loss, but the conflcting emotions she portrays - and those she astutely leaves unspoken - are the bone marrow of our humanity. Director Allie Butler and her cracking cast subtly negotiate the treacherous currents between the sheer banality, grim humour and corrosive despair of a grief that can't be cast off like a piece of Kitt's knittng." Mary Brennan, The Herald

There will be a discussion/question and answer session with the director and cast members after the performance
