The Straw Chair
An internationally renowned play of profound power about liberty and love – both of which are lost and discovered in the unlikeliest of settings…
In the early eighteenth century, seventeen-year-old Isabel and her minister husband Aneas arrive from Edinburgh onto the remote island of Hirta (St. Kilda) to spread the gospel in the Gaelic speaking North, but their lives are about to change, and not for the better.
The Devil Wears Primark
Did you hear the one about the mother-in-law that worked as a radio show therapist and was awarded an MBE for services to the entertainment industry?
Hilarious comedy centred around a demented family gathering to ‘celebrate’ the imminent award of an M.B.E. for their controlling matriarch, whose questionable radio sex therapy advice extends to members of her own family – whether they want it or not.…
An evil prince is ruining the kingdom. He taxes the people something rotten! What’s even worse, a plague of monsters has descended on his poor, unhappy subjects. Something has to be done!
It falls to Quentin (somewhat gormless) to track and slay the Jabberwock. A dangerous job -if only he had heeded his father’s warnings. But then Quentin is doing it all to win his beloved Cynthia. However, the evil prince has designs of his own on the beautiful Cynthia…
Will Quentin survive his quest? Will the evil prince marry Cynthia? Or will the fearsome Jabberwock eat the whole kingdom?
Gavin Marwick's Journeyman Spectacular
Stunning ten-piece band led by fiddler Gavin Marwick, featuring Ruth Morris, Jonny Hardie, Gregor Lowrey, Claire Mann, Fraser Fifield, Bob Turner, Cameron Robson, Aaron Jones and Davy Cattanach.
Described as a ‘mini folk-festival’, Gavin Marwick’s Journeyman project began life at Glasgow's Celtic Connections in 2008, followed by a music book of all of Gavin’s tunes, with a follow-on double Journeyman CD featuring highlights from the book. The book and CD were launched in April 2014 with a series of concerts that featured 10 of the 13 musicians involved in the project.
