Knit thegither a’ the threids, Threids o’ life and livin’ , There’s reid for pleesure, black for pain An’ green for new beginnins.
A play about women, work, and knitting. Threads weaves the stories, historical, verbatim, and imagined into a multi-stranded piece of theatre using music, song and dance. From 19th Century millworkers to modern day knitting clubs, writer Sylvia Dow brings to life the history of knitting in the borders and the threads of life, fate and destiny which bind us all.
