John Muir was born in Scotland, but is renowned in the USA for his campaign to preserve wilderness for wilderness’ sake which led to the establishment of the world’s first national park system and made him a hero throughout the world.
He is rightly considered a pioneer of nature conservation, but who were the woman that inspired him? If it weren't for Jeanne Carr or Louie Strentzel would we even know who he was? If it weren't for John Muir would we know Greta Thunberg?
Two actors will walk the 134 mile route of the John Muir Way across Scotland from Helensburgh to Dunbar, sharing the life of this incredible Scot through stories and song.
Audience reviews for previous Battery productions
"Outstanding performance of an excellent piece of playwriting... well-paced, engaging and the musical accompaniment was beautiful and atmospheric.” (Mary It began with a lass..., 2019)
"Such a moving experience, and so well balanced, with the powerful poignancy of the story offset with great humour... it is through the power of this sort of empathetic and personal storytelling that the lessons of history are really felt in the soul. We all need that - now more than ever." (Homecoming, 2018)
