A verbatim piece of theatre about what men really say about women.
More info coming soon.
It’s 1997. You’re 11 and you’re lonely, sad and scared of doing anything that could cause you to be singled out by the hopeless, angry people in your hometown.
One day, a man appears on telly – mumbling, yet electrifying. He sings: “I am human and I need to be loved, just like everybody else does”. This guy gets it. You become obsessed with him. Later, when you need someone, you write to him. A lot.
It’s 2016, you find those letters and ask yourself: “Has the world changed, or have I changed”.
What are the odds of living an extraordinary life? The story of one boy’s granddad who won a fortune betting on the 1966 World Cup and, when diagnosed with cancer, gambled it all on living to see the year 2000. An intergenerational tale of what we live for and what we leave behind.
I’m in love with a man from Dundee
Though he lived 100 years before me
He was a poet
He was aware of this
I think he was brilliant
But not everyone would agree
His name was Sir William Topaz McGonagall.
His life I will now attempt to chronicle.
This award winning show from writer/performer Gary McNair is in it’s fourth outing in the UK since it’s hugely successful premier at the Traverse Theatre in 2014. It’s a coming of age story that deconstructs the darker side of comedy, and sees McNair performing at his ‘brilliant best’ (Scotsman).
The world is falling apart.
Things aren’t as good as they used to be. Everything is going to shit.
Well, if you think that the world is out of control now, just think about what it will be like 20 years or so from now when the monied elites have nally come in to get us back on track to the way things should be.
That should sort everything out.
Unless you’re a woman, of course, then you’re really fucked.
