PLEADING
By Rob Drummond
Tue 3 – Sat 7 Oct, 1pm; Fri 6 Oct, 7pm

Freya and Michael have been travelling around the world, celebrating their freedom before beginning University. Everything had been going reasonably well, until they find themselves arrested after a problem at customs. Three weeks later, still in prison awaiting their court date, a defence barrister arrives to advise them of the choices they face; pleading guilty or innocent.

LOVE AND DEATH IN GOVAN AND HYNDLAND
By Ian Pattison
Tue 10 – Sat 14 Oct, 1pm; Fri 13 Oct, 7pm

Ivan is a writer with a deadline but he’s blocked. Ten years ago to the day his mother passed and a phone call from his brother has him reliving the last chaotic months of her life. He reviews his own journey from deepest Govan to the privileged nirvana of Glasgow’s west end.

HYSTERIA!
By AJ Taudevin
Tue 17 – Sat 21 Oct, 1pm; Fri 20 Oct, 7pm

In April this year, theatre-maker Julia Taudevin and Dr Iris Elliott of the Mental
Health Foundation, began exploring the impact of sexism on mental health. This is a darkly comic political cabaret for our times, partly inspired by the 2016 US election and the 2017 global women’s marches, and written in dialogue with over 100 people.
Presented in association with Scottish Mental Health Arts Festival.

FROM THE AIR
By Anita Vettesse
Tue 24 – Sat 28 Oct, 1pm; Fri 27 Oct, 7pm

Claire’s kids have fled the nest. The hole this leaves in her life brings on a crippling
fear of flying. Her fear has bled into most things now. Her life is becoming smaller.
Her husband Pete works on the rigs and is due to retire soon. He thinks Claire’s been dealing with her phobia. She’s promised him this time she has. She hasn’t. Fear of flying is just one of the many symptoms threatening this long, fragile marriage.
Presented in association with Aberdeen Performing Arts.

#71
By Karen Dunbar
Tue 31 Oct – Sat 4 Nov, 1pm; Fri 3 Nov, 7pm

In Partick there’s a quiet storm brewing. 71 year-old Chrissy invites her two oldest friends, Jean and Coco, to her house. The two OAPs rassle for Chrissy’s affection, slinging ancient mud at each other. Then comes the revelation which changes everything. Three women who’ve spent most of their lives together explore the global reality that most people are not exactly as they present themselves.
