Skerryvore: A Tale of Terror

Melody Marshall

Theater, Immersive/Interactive Experience, Storytelling


In December 1876, the crew of the remote lighthouse at Skerryvore disappeared. The only witness was a young girl called Mary Campbell. 23 years later, she is mesmerized so she can recall the mysterious events. But all is not quite as it seems…

This story was written as a site specific piece for London's Old Operating Theatre and explores the gendered ideas of mental illness that were prominent in the late 19th century medical field. Skerryvore explores Mary's past with the "help" of her doctor who doesn't know as much as he thinks and his passion for breaking through to her is not as well intentioned as he tells his students it is. What he doesn't know is just how in control Mary is, but he's bound to find out soon.
