Essa Flett – The Selkie’s Wife

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ “A bewitching performance” - Binge Fringe Magazine

From the creator of ROOTS (Fringe 2019) and cast member of the hit 2022 Edinburgh Fringe Bradán Theatre show My Lover Was A Salmon in the Climate Apocalypse, comes a ‘bewitching’ (Binge Fringe Magazine) new solo folk storytelling performance.

Join Elisabeth Flett as she gives the audience a decidedly sapphic retelling of the Selkie tale- that is, she’ll try to, if her own story would only stop getting in the way. A tour de force of Flett’s award-winning career as a folk musician, folklorist, writer and theatre-maker, The Selkie’s Wife is a show full of live music, academic fun facts, storytelling, foley art - and maybe some queer revenge…

Suitable for 14+

Content Warnings: descriptions of institutional homophobia, sexism, non- consensual marriage, chronic illness and one use of strong violence (no depictions of the above are shown in the show), one use of strong language.
