Little Forks is the poetic story of a brother (Perigee) and sister (Hecate), set in Tighnabruaich. Hecate returns to the remote holiday cottage where she and Perigee used to go with their parents.  An incident involving both siblings occurred during that last holiday, which meant they would never return.  Hecate revisits the places she and Peri used to go – in particular, the remains of an Iron Age homestead hidden deep in the forest.  Peri finally tells his version of what happened in the past and how it reverberates in the present.  An unsettling and atmospheric story about memories and landscape, inner voices, divergence and attempted reconciliation.

Little Forks / Forcan Beaga

'beautiful, lyrical work... a vision which is perhaps nearer the truth than we know.' (Meg Bateman)

 

'Sharp’s powerful dramatic poem for two voices… What Sharp has created is a grave, powerful and richly contemporary event, inspired by the special power of Scotland’s far western landscape, and brave enough to bring these two mighty languages alongside one another.  It should be seen across Scotland, not least in those areas where Gaelic still lives, breathes, and has the power to change.' (Joyce McMillan in The Scotsman, on the performed readings)

'This rich and complex interplay of voice and landscape questions and celebrates the transitory and evanescent. ...spare, precise, yet delicate imagery... Impossible not to be moved by these restless, shifting poems with their precise yet tender observation of decay and disrepair… a beautifully balanced work.'  (Anna Crowe)
