SKYE LONERAGAN

Passionate about curiosity as a kind of currency, both in terms of value and exchange, Skye Loneragan is an award-winning writer/performer whose work spans theatre, poetry and live art. Her first solo work Cracked, (dir. Zinnie Harris), won an Edinburgh Fringe First award and she has worked with some of Australia and the UK’s leading companies, and toured her solo shows and spoken word internationally.

Skye’s current show Though This Be Madness is ‘slow touring’ Scotland from February 2022 starting at the Lemon Tree in Aberdeen and taking in one venue/location each month. The slow tour is designed to make plausible the child-care realities of making, performing and parenting. A theatre show set in a lounge room, Though This Be Madness features a recovering new mum who is attempting to tell you many tales of sisterhood struggles with mental health. Originally part of the 2018 Scottish Mental Health Arts Festival (SMHAF) and due to tour in spring 2020, it has been supported by Creative Scotland Touring Fund and SMHAF.
