Gwen Taylor stars in a new thriller by Ali Milles.

Directed by Philip Franks

Based on a true story.

The stage production, which was filmed for online before lockdown, is available now for just £10 until 31 December. 

In the remote Scottish Highlands two women arrive at a former Crofters Hut in the deserted village of Coillie Ghille. When suddenly the weekend getaway takes an unexpected turn. Cut off from the modern world, Laura and Suzanne find themselves drawn into the dark history of the Croft and the lives that passed before them.

In this bold and haunting new play the present interweaves with the past as ancient tales surface and the terrifying truth lurking In the Croft is revealed.

Directed by award-winning director Philip Franks (The Habit of Art) and produced by The Original Theatre Company (The Habit of Art, The Night Watch, Birdsong), The Croft will be setting pulses racing this Autumn.

Starring national treasure Gwen Taylor (BarbaraA Bit of A DoCoronation StreetHeartbeat), Caroline Harker (MiddlemarchA Touch of Frost), Drew Cain (Emmerdale), Lucy Doyle and Simon Roberts.
