Bonnie Fechters : Songs & Stories of Hope & Resistance

Written and Performed by Morna Burdon

A One-Woman Show Celebrating Women of Courage Across the Centuries

A Bonnie Fechter is someone who stands up for themself or for what they believe in, and in her show of that name Morna weaves an inspiring tapestry of songs and stories shedding light on remarkable women from Scotland and throughout the world whose courage, love, inventiveness and human spirit have changed all our lives forever.

In 50 minutes, the audience discover the names of Scottish women targeted as witches, hear tales of the girls who survived the Magdalene institutions for ‘fallen women’; explore the 1976 ‘Strikers in Saris’ protest and many more as the show journeys from Scotland to Vietnam ; from U.S.A. civil rights and labour activists to late 19th century Syrian refugees; from the  9 year old girl who played the pipes outside prison gates to support the Suffragettes, to the modern photographer who rode horseback in Mongolia with her 6-year-old daughter to record the lives of women there.

Following the performance Morna invites you to stay behind to share stories of women they know of who have also been bonnie fechters.

Playing to sell-out audiences at the Edinburgh and  Prague Fringes, and with a previous highly successful Scottish tour under her belt Morna is currently booked for Adelaide Fringe in Spring 2023 and is delighted to be performing for more rural Scottish audiences throughout the year.
