Hannah Lavery

Scottish writer and Edinburgh Makar, Hannah Lavery, has a stunning piece on BBC Radio 4 at present (to be found here, on BBC Sounds).

‘Finding Seaglass’ offers a searingly honest portrayal of growing up, and raising children mixed-race in Scotland. A beautiful story of love, loss, bereavement and hope, Hannah’s story challenges audiences to see Scottish history and our public memory in a different light. It was produced for BBC Radio 4 by Almost Tangible and the National Theatre of Scotland and is one of the most moving and thought provoking plays heard on BBC Radio 4 for a very long time. It is available online until the end of July 2023.

‘A captivating spoken-word sound journey that interweaves poems with drama, Finding Seaglass pulses with Hannah’s lived experience, underscored by haunting music and the sounds of Scotland’s shores’
