Cleas Feasgair ("The Evening Play")

Posted on 15 March 2012

In 2007, Sorbier produced a half hour play for television. It was adapted from a theatre piece written by renowned Lewis writer Iain Crichton Smith in the ‘60s, and starred Tony Kearney. The film was directed by Eleanor Yule.

“Cleas Feasgair” was the product of a year’s development between Patsi Mackenzie and the late, much lamented actor and dramaturge Simon Mackenzie. The project took its cue from the great tradition of theatre on TV such as "Play For Today" and "Armchair Theatre."

Starring alongside Tony, were Chrissie Smith and John Macaskill of The Edinburgh Players. Director of Photography was Ivan Hinchley, and Andy Fegen edited the film.
