THE Gaelic legends afford many interesting, not to say thrilling, examples of the weird and mysterious. This play is founded upon one of these, ancl illustrates in an emphatic manner the strong belief in such legends that survives to this dey in the more remote parts of our own country.
The Action opens in a small fishing boat in heavy weather off one of the Islands of the Hebrides. The crew join in a traditional shanty while shortening sail because of the storm which is about to break.
In this wild setting, Donald, Angus and Jan discuss the ancient legend with its curious application to Jan's family, and during the course of the play its remarkable fulfilment is shown.
