“From the moment she stepped onstage, Sandra had the first night audience eating out of her hand. She shocked them, she made them laugh, and brought them close to tears as she recreated her family life.” – Glasgow Evening Times

“Humorous…harrowing…heartstopping.” – Janey Godley, writer and comedienne

“I was totally captivated – it’s mindblowing” – Carol Laula, award winning Scottish singer/songwriter

A powerful personal testimony, “One of our Ain” is based on true events. The award winning Sandra Brown OBE and former Scotswoman of the Year tells her amazing story of growing up in the small 1950’s Scottish town of Coatbridge- a community profoundly affected by the disappearance of a little girl, Moira Anderson.

In what has been described as groundbreaking theatre, in a unique performance Sandra shares with the audience a superbly evoked portrayal of her childhood, and the pain of confronting her father’s behaviour. Derived from her UK and European bestseller “Where There is Evil” Sandra’s story of how she came to be convinced of her own father’s part in a child’s abduction and murder cannot fail to touch all who see it. The one woman play hurtles from glimpses of humour which are typically Scottish, to gutwrenching revelations that bring gasps.

“Explosive, and evocative. A remarkable story that climbs into your mind and stays there” – Scotland Online

“Sandra Brown’s past has come back to haunt her in an extraordinary way… it rocks many fondly held assumptions about the warmth of working class culture in the 1950’s ” – Sunday Times, UK
