FROM PAISLEY TO PAOLO
By Martin McCardie
Tue 10th – Sat 14th September
It’s 2006, Jack is 19 and was born on the same day, in the same hour, in the same hospital as Paolo Nutini.
He goes to T in the Park in a stolen hearse with his two best friends Jack and Mavis, and promises that his best pal Paolo will be there to meet them. Nothing will be the same again.
NUMBER ONE FAN
By Kim Millar
Tue 17th – Sat 21st September
Jan McArthur is raging. Her husband just left her for a woman 20 years her junior.
She's lost her job. Her cat just died. And to cap it all, the menopause is on the rampage, leaving her a hot flashing mess. When Jan reads Jack Bonham’s women-hating column, he becomes the embodiment of everything that is wrong in her life. Jan sets out for revenge.
MACK THE KNIFE
By Morag Fullarton
Tue 24th – Sat 28th September
Berlin, the late 1920’s… a time of decadence, despair and joie de vivre.
A young Jewish composer, Kurt Weill, meets his muse, singer Lotte Lenya, and falls in love. He collaborates with playwright Bertolt Brecht on what they both consider a ‘bit of a potboiler’. As The Threepenny Opera delights audiences across Europe, a new barbarism is erupting which will change everyone’s lives forever.
By Peter Arnott
Tue 1st – Sat 5th October
Winter 1919. Thomas Barclay is transported back in time, to the night when he was the Signalman who sent the Edinburgh/Burntisland train onto the Tay Rail Bridge, 40 years before.
Who is responsible when accidents occur? Why is there a difference between what we feel and what we know? Why do we need somebody to blame… even if it’s ourselves?
FLY ME TO THE MOON
By Marie Jones
Tue 8th – Sat 12th October
Francis and Loretta are broke community care workers.
Davy, one of their charges, has had a big win on the horses, and now the women grapple with their conscience. Marie Jones’ black comedy investigates whether we are valued more in life or in death.
THE SWEETEST GROWL
