The story of a former soldier who chose not to talk for 50 years and wove intricate items from grass and leaves will be told in a new play. Angus MacPhee, who died in 1997, took ill while garrisoned on the Faroes and was later a psychiatric patient.
Lancashire-based Horse and Bamboo Theatre will take Angus - Weaver of Grass on tour from next week. Three years in the making, the play draws on stories about the Uist-born soldier and research material.
