Theatre Paradok presents “Pilgrimage”, by Cameron Dalgleish.
“Pilgrimage” follows the story of a disillusioned boy, Palmer, who runs from his blasphemous crimes into the ominous forest, where he is viciously blinded by an unknown attacker. He is pursued by the Gods-fearing warden of his village, Bridget. Grappling with their faith and survival, Bridget and Palmer desperately try to escape the woods, each other and the cunning beast that watches over them. “Pilgrimage” is heavily inspired by Scottish folk tales, traditional music, and explores religion, questioning how far one would go for their faith and what we can blindly worship.
