Kora is well known in Whitfield. Her house is bursting at the seams with children, the neighbour's taken to throwing his electrical goods out of the window and another one is keeping a horse in his house.
Premiered at the Traverse in 1986 and set in the Skarne flats in Dundee's Whitfield area, Kora is a funny, sometimes tragic and always poetic play about what happens when people are pushed too far. Developed from a drama-documentary Tom McGrath planned for the BBC but never made, at the play's heart is the enchanting, beautiful, almost mythical Kora - part Earth-mother, part Tiger-mother.
Kora was a co-production between Magnetic North and Dundee Rep and was performed in a specially created performance space at the Bonar Hall, Dundee.
