(From the publisher):
Neil and Iona are a comfortable but complacent couple in their early thirties with well-paid professional jobs in a Scottish metropolis. They dress both themselves and their home immaculately; their lives are ordered to the point of sterility. Into their lives burst Kirsty, Iona's anarchic sister, who manages to turn the whole evening into a startling topsy-turvy treat. Only a bit to do with Hielan second sight, The Seer is a contemporary comedy of manners which asks the audience to consider just what it is they are seeing. A lively, funny, satirical rollercoaster where words like 'free' and 'spirit' encounter a whole new Scottish distillation.
