Allotment

Synopsis:
Do flowers matter as much as vegetables ? Join green-fingered sisters Dora and Maddy as they live out their rivalry among the plants. When the unexpected rocks their uneasy balance, its time to do something radical. and what nicer way to watch a major case of sibling rivalry in action than over a cuppa and a homemade scone? aLLOTMeNT is a feast for the senses - a tale of life, death, Pink Fir apples and the secret power of worms.

Gorgeous Avatar

Synopsis:
a wry, tender and fantastical story of love and loneliness in the digital age, premiered at the Traverse in edinburgh in 2006. amy's living the dream. a country hideaway, online home-working, and everything delivered right to the door. there's little reason to go beyond the garden gate ever again. She's even found romance on the internet - high tech, long distance, low maintenance. except he's real, and he's on a plane somewhere over the Atlantic. . .

Thread

Synopsis:
Come roll your dice at the church hall beetle drive and share Joan, William and Izzys tangled lives. Friends since primary school and closer-than-close ever since, identities stitched together as intricately as their homemade party clothes. Living in the secure but suffocating embrace of a 1950s Scottish seaside community, who gets to become the person they want to be? Thread explores the choices we make and who we become when our memories start to fade.

Wife Of Ushers Well, The

Synopsis:
This show is a modern retelling of the supernatural ballad, the story of a soldier son's supernatural return to his mother for one last night together. In the musical storytelling theatre style which has become Quondam theatre's hallmark, this timeless situation of a mother and son fighting to say the things they always meant to say will be one of the highlights of the season at Bowhill. as Karen, a feisty 40 something, fights to keep truths from her ghostly wayward son, they relive moments from his childhood, including favourite Border stories such as the Wizard's apprentice and Thomas the Rhymer. Told in different performance styles with music and song, the show will enthrall, delight and ultimately lift the spirits.
