ISLETS OF SILENCE (THE C WORD)

A Tramdirect Theatre production, in partnership with Pancreatic Cancer Scotland, part funded by Culture and Arts Scotland.
Written and directed by Isobel Barrett.
Friday 8th October 7.30pm
£14/£12 + Booking Fees

The Gourley family of four enjoy life. Yes, they have their ups and downs, but their closeness is never in doubt. All this changes when a member of the family is diagnosed with Pancreatic Cancer. Yet, as in life, surely there is always hope?

Created in partnership with Pancreatic Cancer Scotland, Islets of Silence aims to encourage dialogue on an often-difficult subject by highlighting the effects of a diagnosis on everyday people: from patient, to doctor, to loved ones. Because where there is heartbreak, there is also room for hope, tenacity and compassion.

OH WHISTLE... TWO GHOST STORIES by M.R. James
Performed by R. M. Lloyd Parry: Nunkie Theatre
Friday 12th November
Birnam Arts
7.30pm
£13 plus Booking Fee

**** "Lloyd Parry catches the sense of dread that gives James his originality" THE TIMES



M.R. James is acknowledged as the master of the English Ghost Story. Robert Lloyd Parry first conceived the M.R. James Project as an initiative to bring back to life the eeriest and most entertaining of these enduringly brilliant tales, many of which were originally written to be performed by the author to his friends, in his rooms in King’s College, Cambridge on Christmas Eve. Now Parry has brought two of these unforgettable spine-chillers back to life. 

Oh, Whistle, And I’ll Come To You, My Lad – a tale of nocturnal horror on the Suffolk coast – is considered by many to be James’s masterpiece. It is beautifully complemented here by The Ash Tree, a story of witchcraft and vengeance down the generations.
