New Victory Players present The Yellow on the Broom
By Anne Downie
Based on the novel by Betsy Whyte
This is a heart-warming story of a young Scottish traveller, 14 year old Bessie and her family in 1930's Scotland. She recorded her experiences in her memoir The Yellow on the Broom which has been adapted for stage by playwright, Anne Downie.
The play shows us Bessie's early life with her mum, dad and siblings. She and her family move from one travelling group to another, get work where they can and spend winter months indoors so Bessie can do her obligatory 100 days at school. They are part of a close-knit community who follow their own customs and traditions, frequently misunderstood by outsiders. However this tale also captures the joy and beauty of a traveller's life.
