He wants to turn the tide of neglect and indifference and keep his family - and community - together.

Lucky Box

Synopsis:
the hoodie meets the suit in this duologue between a middle-aged man and a teenager on a deserted forest path. It all starts innocently enough with the man 'a' handing the teenager 'J' a glove he appears to have dropped, but their conversation soon moves on to darker territory. at first it seems a is just a lonely man looking for company as he talks to the innocent looking lad J, about laughing at disasters. So far, so 'train journey where some old guy invades your personal space', only the abstract discussion starts to give way to more specific information from both a and J. the discussion of inappropriate sniggering is fascinating in itself and it paves the way for the rest of the piece, as well as giving away a few clues about the two characters.

Refusal, The

Synopsis:
Imagine that there are two half-hour shows, one played out in the Ladies toilet, the other in the Gents. Imagine that each show consists of four five-minute monologues, written and performed by some of the finest theatre artists in Scotland. and then imagine that you experience each of these snippets alone, face to face with a single actor, either in a toilet cubicle, or somewhere around the wash-basins. This is the arches 15th anniversary show Spend a Penny; and it makes an extraordinary, intense and challenging 21st-century theatre experience, sometimes as rich and intimate as a private moment with a sister or best friend, sometimes as grotesque and vivid as a trip to the underworld, in a painting by Brueghel or Bosch.
