Third Angel presents

Cape Wrath

Third Angel presents a story of family, of fellow travellers, of whisky and chocolate, of the longest bus journey in Britain, told to an audience of just 14. Completely sold out for its run at the Edinburgh Fringe in 2013, Cape Wrath is heartfelt, moving and funny. A compellingly intimate journey to the edge of the island.
