Be Near Me

Be Near Me

In Be Near Me, it is Dalgarnock, a kind of mini-Glasgow of sectarian tension, where Father David, played by adapter Ian McDiarmid finds himself suffering a crisis of faith both in self-confidence and religion. The emptiness of his life and that of a town where unemployment is the norm, following the closure of the mines and the factories, is symbolised by Peter McKintosh's stark, bare set. Even Davey Anderson's characteristic, jaunty songs cannot inject hope where none remains.
