Storms batter shoreline communities. Sea levels rise. Skeleton Wumman tells her story from beneath the sea. Once a disabled teenager, her life was confined to watching TV, and occasional visits to her local swimming pool. It was there that she fell in love with a young deaf man before she and her parents were swept from their home by a devastating tidal wave. Now, beneath the sea, she feels that something is about to happen. Snagged on a cable, a young man accidentally hauls her to the surface. He’s terrified, but slowly they recognize one other… Live music and sign language are integrated throughout the play.

Actor/writer/director Gerda Stevenson directed the first ever Play, Pie, Pint production at Òran Mór, and many others since, including her own play Federer Versus Murray, which was shortlisted for the 2010 London Festival Fringe Theatre Writing Award, runner-up for the Best Scottish Contribution to Drama on the Edinburgh Fringe, 2011, and toured to New York in 2012, where it was published by Salmagundi. She has written many plays for BBC radio, most recently a two-part drama on Homelessness, 2013. Her poetry collection If This Were Real was published by Smokestack Books last summer, and she was winner of the 2013 YES Arts Poetry Challenge.
