Astronauts Chair, The

Astronauts Chair, The
A thrilling play about the race to be the first woman in space. She's the gritty, glamorous aviator; the fastest, highest, bravest woman in the world, but with one last race to go: to dream the impossible dream, to reach the unreachable stars. If NASA will let her - and Congress plays ball. We choose to go to the moon in this decade and do the other things, not because they are easy, but because they are hard. . .because that challenge is one that we are willing to accept, one that we are unwilling to postpone, and one which we intend to win- President Kennedy, 1961.

Notes:
he Astronauts Chair, specially commissioned by the Drum theatre, is Rona Munros second space play following Little Eagles, about the space race in Russia, produced by the Royal Shakespeare Company last year

Basement Flat, The

Basement Flat, The
the Basement Flat features Fiona and Stephen, whose domestic life, if ever it was idyllic, is rapidly shading into a horror-movie nightmare. In a globally warmed London full of lush vegetation, "hot, dirty rain", creeping fungus and feral teenagers, they cower in the rented basement flat of the house they once owned but have had to sell, too frightened even to search for their teenage daughter, who seems to be living somewhere in the jungly garde.

Bold Girls

Synopsis:
the Dramas of everyday life in Belfast are but off-stage events in this stirring play about the lives of three women whose men have been killed or imprisoned for their political activities, but where bread must still be bought between explosions. In spite of its chilling theme there are many humorous and heart-warming moments - a play about people, not politics, which offers excellent acting opportunities. Rona Munro received the Evening Standard Most Promising Playwright Award for 1991 for Bold Girls.

Gordon Brown: A Life in theatre

Synopsis:
It's the night before the election and Gordon Brown can't sleep. Tomorrow he will go before the public to finally claim victory or accept defeat. In a fitful night of dreams and memories he casts his mind across a political career that spans two decades at the top. Does he deserve to win? What's at stake if he loses? But most important, what is there left to say? Gordon Brown: A Life in theatre will be a "freewheeling exploration of contemporary politics from inside the fractured mind of a Prime Minister on verge of an electoral breakdown." the script will be written during election week to capture the immediacy and excitement of the election and the unfolding events of the week. the play will then be performed as staged readings on 6 May itself. Eight Scottish playwrights will work together to produce the finished play which will be directed by one of the playwrights, David Greig. Joining Greig will be Rona Munro, Peter Arnot, Vicki Liddelle, Gabriel Quigley, Andy Duffy, Alan Wilkins and David Ireland. Speaking about the project, Traverse theatre Artistic Director Dominic Hill, said, "Scottish theatre has a tradition of responding through theatre to events in the political world. Gordon Brown himself was a Board member of the famous political theatre company 7:84 which created, amongst others, the masterpiece the Cheviot, the Stag and the Black Black Oil. I've always wanted the Traverse to sit within the immediate cultural and political life of the nation. All theatre is political in that it is about and affects us, the way we live our lives, our position in society and the world." the performances will take place at the Traverse at lunchtime on election day, and again on election night, where the Traverse Bar Cafe will screen the election results throughout.

James I: The Key Will Keep The Lock

Synopsis:
Bold and irreverent storytelling explores the complex character of this colourful Stewart king - a poet, a lover, a law-maker but also the product of a harsh political system. James I of Scotland was captured when he was only 13 and became King of Scots in an English prison. 18 years later he's finally delivered back home with a ransom on his head and a new English bride. He's returning to a poor nation, the royal coffers are empty and his nobles are a pack of wolves ready to tear him apart at the first sign of weakness. But James has his own ideas about how to be a king and, after 18 years, he finally has the chance to realise them. James is determined to bring the rule of law to a land riven by warring families, but that struggle will force him to make terrible choices if he is to save himself, his Queen and the crown.

James II: Day of the Innocents

Synopsis:
In the second of Rona Munro's dynastical trilogy, innocent games merge with murderous intent in a violent royal playground of shifting realities and paranoia. An eight year old boy is crowned King of Scots. Soon James II is the prize in a vicious game between the country's most powerful families, for whoever has the person of the boy king, controls the state. Seen through a child's eyes, the Scottish court is a world of monsters with sharp teeth and long knives. Growing up alone, abandoned by his mother and separated from his sisters, James II is little better than a puppet. There is only one relationship he can trust, his growing friendship with another lonely boy, William, the future Earl of Douglas. The two boys cling together as they try to survive the murder and mayhem that surrounds them. But the independence and power of young adulthood brings James into an even more threatening world. He has to fight the feuding nobles who still want to control him, he has to make brutal choices about the people he loves best, he has to struggle to keep his tenuous grip on the security of the crown and on his sanity. . .while the nightmares and demons of his childhood rise up again with new and murderous intent.

James III: The True Mirror

Synopsis:
Like James III himself, the final instalment of Rona Munro's extraordinary trilogy is colourful, brash and unpredictable. It turns its eye on the women of the royal court, both lowly and high born, who prove to be its beating heart. Queen Margaret, married to James III is played by Sofie Grabol, most known to audiences as Sarah Lund in the Danish TV series, The Killing. James III of Scotland. A man who's irresistible, charismatic, a man of fashion and culture. A man with big dreams. . .and no budget to realise any of them. Obsessed with grandiose schemes that his nation can ill-afford and his restless nobles will no longer tolerate, James is loved and loathed in dangerously unstable proportions. But Scotland's future will be decided by the woman who loves him best of all, his resourceful and resilient wife, Queen Margaret of Denmark. As dreams battle brutal realities and the nation thunders dangerously close to regicide and civil war, her true love and clear vision offer the only protection that can save a fragile monarchy and rescue a struggling people. But the cost for Margaret herself may be too high.

Last Witch, The

Last Witch, The
Dornoch, northern Scotland, 1727. In the claustrophobic heat of summer, a woman's apparent ability to manipulate the power of land and sea stirs suspicion. Janet Horne can cure beasts, call the wind and charm fish out of the sea. Or can she? As her refUSAl to refute their claims of sorcery incenses the local community, her magnetic allure continues to captivate and destroy. the Last Witch is based on the historical account of Janet Horne, the last woman to be executed for witchcraft in Scotland. She was sentenced to death by burning in her home town, accused by friends and neighbours who believed she had made a pact with the devil. Rona Munro is one of Scotland's leading playwrights and the Last Witch has been specially commissioned by the Festival. Munro explores the psychological rifts that can divide close communities and drive families apart, and vividly illustrates the destructive potential of fear in a small village.

Welcome to the Hotel Caledonia

Synopsis:
It's election night in the Hotel Caledonia, not that anybody cares. there are two weddings on and one's descending into a fistfight. the bar's littered with exhausted politicians who can't bring themselves to watch the count, the groom's trying to decide which bridesmaid to chat up on the principle of the single transferable vote, and Mr and Mrs Scotland's attempt at a dirty weekend is descending into divorce. At the centre of it all, Svetlana - the Lithuanian receptionist - is trying to decide whether she should stay or go. Can Gavin - the assistant manager with a crush on her the size of a small Baltic Republic - persuade her that Scotland's got a future? Welcome to the Hotel Caledonia will be written in the two days prior to May 5th to capture the immediacy and excitement of the election and the unfolding events of the week. It will be performed script in hand on the day of the election itself. Some of Scotland's most exciting writers will conjure up a cast of dreamers, ranters, visionaries and street preachers all trying to make sense of a country which just can't seem to make up its mind what it wants. Expect comedy, satire and probably a fair degree of bitterness and rage.
