St Kilda Story, an ensemble piece, links the history of the Scottish St Kilda, remote islands beyond the outer Hebrides, with contemporary St Kilda in Melbourne. In 1930 the last thirty-six inhabitants were evacuated from St Kilda, Scotland, ending 4000 years of settlement. Gerry, a schoolboy in contemporary St Kilda, Melbourne, is led on a trail of discovery by Winnie, a resident of a nursing home, in which Gerry's mother Anna is a nursing sister. As the Scottish St Kilda's extraordinary stories are revealed through narrative and song, Gerry sees links with events happening around him. History has spoken.
