New life. New start. New island. Clare should be excited. She should be planning and growing. But as the fog lingers, so does doubt. Fear. Confusion. Something's different. Some things will never be the same again.
Rippling is an extract of a play that looks at lives on the brink of change, and explores isolation and uncertainty. It questions what home means to us and looks at how we engage with the world around us.

The Coffin Race
written by Isla Robertson
directed by Bruce Downie
A staged radio play where every sound effect, from falling coffins and squelching mud to distant guns and errant sheep, is created live on stage.
Set in a 1920s Highland community devastated by 'the war to end all wars', The Coffin Race is a black comedy that takes its premise from the ancient superstition that the most recently buried spirit must keep watch over the graveyard until the next body arrives. But what happens if two people die at the same time? Then it becomes quite literally a race to the grave…
