Dave House was the sound designer and composer for acclaimed storyteller Mara Menzies‘ 2019 Edinburgh Fringe show.

Blood and Gold consists of three intertwined stories exploring issues of race and womanhood. Read the review in The Scotsman

“Ancient mythology and modern storytelling collide in a contemporary exploration of the legacy of colonialism and slavery by award-winning Scottish Kenyan storyteller Mara Menzies.

A dying mother gives her daughter a box containing three clues to a priceless treasure. This sets in motion a journey filled with humour and tragedy that considers the importance of ritual, identity and belonging.”
