Description

Set in a small Scottish town, where a lack of prospects leaves the young people looking for more, Salmon follows Angus and his self-destruction in the aftermath of his dog's death. As Angus struggles between the weekend raves and weekday restlessness, we are swept along into a world where dogs run security businesses, flies talk, and nothing is quite what it seems. Salmon blends spoken word, music and surrealism to ask of its audience: why is it so hard to admit you're not okay?

Salmon hits you hard from the moment you step in the venue. A bare mattress lies on the floor, our protagonist Angus strewn across it as casually as the mess of empty beer cans littered around him. This play, set in rural Scotland, follows the life of Angus as he...
