Description

Two performers speak one story, one life... but only one is telling their own personal truth... A new play about honesty, illness and all the joys of breathing. This is an intimate, part-sung, part-spoken production with challenging personal themes. Created by one of Scotland's leading theatres, following up on the company's sleeper smash hit of Fringe 2017, The Gardener – critically acclaimed as one of the festival discoveries that year. Herald Angel award winners. 'Perfectly formed gem... most moving play of the year' ***** (Times). 'Fragile and intimate... tautly written, excellently acted, sweetly staged' **** (Scotsman).

There are two people in front of us in white jump suits, devoid of colour with a blue wash that has a sterile quality. That sterility is clearly an obvious nod to the medical issues faced by Kirsty. There are two of them because there is always the possibility that...

Broadway Baby (5/5 stars) 127 days ago

Biographical performances like LipSync, produced by Cumbernauld Theatre as part of their Invited Guest project, don't always have some obvious, political point to make; they're more often encouraging audience empathy, sharing someone's life experiences and view of the world. The nearest that this new two-woman show comes to point-making is...
