Presented by the Traverse Theatre
By Chris Grady
TUE 11 – SAT 15 SEP, 1PM; FRI 14 SEP, 7PM
Jay hasn’t left his flat in years due to a fear of the outside world, exacerbated by an endless cycle of TV news. It’s not a problem though; online shopping and his mum are all he really needs anyway. But when a gun is inexplicably posted through his letterbox and two unwelcome visitors come knocking, Jay can’t hide any longer. The outside world is coming to him.
TAP DANCING WITH JEAN-PAUL SARTRE
By James Runcie
TUE 18 – SAT 22 SEP, 1PM; FRI 21 SEP, 7PM
Paris, spring 1956, where Fred Astaire, the world’s greatest dancer, Jean-Paul Sartre, the world’s most influential philosopher and Audrey Hepburn, the world’s most beautiful woman, meet in a musical comedy about existentialism, the meaning of life and tap dancing your way to happiness… It don’t mean a thing if it ain’t got that swing!
By Donna Franceschild
TUE 25 – SAT 29 SEPT, 1PM; FRI 28 SEP, 7PM
Saleh and Jacek are on a run of bad luck. Saleh’s asylum claim isn’t looking hopeful, Jacek hasn’t been able to send money to his wife in Krakow for months, and they’ve just been ejected from a homeless shelter for ‘rowdy behaviour’. But when a lottery ticket blows into Jacek’s coat as he sleeps, Saleh is convinced their fortunes are about to change.
TIPPING THE HAT
By John Bett
TUE 2 – SAT 6 OCT, 1PM; FRI 5 OCT, 7PM
Presented in classic revue format, Tipping the Hat brings the satirical songs of Michael Flanders and Donald Swann, a stage duo of the 50s and 60s, to a contemporary audience. Two men and a piano invite you to enjoy some silliness, be touched by elegant sadness, savour humanity and revel in delicious wit.
IT WISNAE ME
By Alan Bissett
TUE 9 – SAT 13 OCT, 1PM; FRI 12 OCT, 7PM
A police interview room. A table. Jock has been huckled for a crime he says he didn't commit: imperialism. He has been spotted at the scene, but is it what it looks like? Or is Jock, despite what he claims, a racist himself? It Wisnae Me is a political satire posing the question of Scotland’s complicity in colonisation.
THE LAST PICTURE SHOW
By Morag Fullarton
TUE 16 – SAT 20 OCT, 1PM; FRI 19 OCT, 7PM
Before the war, Billy was a budding musician, playing along to silent movies in the picture houses of Glasgow. December 1918, he returns blinded, scarred and stuck in a small town with no job prospects. Between the last few months of WW1 and the immediate aftermath, a strange encounter brings Billy the hope that he may not have played his last picture show.
