Men On Boats

Ten explorers. Four boats. One Grand Canyon. Race down the rapids in this wildly, wonderful gender-bending escapade. Based (broadly) on the true adventures of the one-armed pioneering explorer John Wesley Powell and his intrepid crew, this gleefully subversive play capsizes the white male conquest narrative and discovers the beautifully fluid depth and courage of a wholly different landscape.


The Events

In the rehearsal room of a community choir, Claire and her colleague encounter a visitor who makes an impossible demand: “I have one bullet left. Which one of you is it for?” A flash. An instant. One moment is all it takes to irrevocably change a life, a family, and a community. Weaving together bold theatricality, unflinching storytelling, and live local community choirs, David Greig’s daring and powerful play explores our desire to fathom the unfathomable and asks how far forgiveness will stretch in the face of atrocity. Winner of a 2013 Scotsman Fringe First Award.

Lungs

How exactly does one decide to bring a child into this world – with the oceans, and the climate, and the, you know, everything else? Surely the kid’s Eiffel Tower-sized carbon footprint is reason enough not to. But what if baby grows up to solve the world’s problems? Then again, what if baby grows up to be a mass murderer? Or what if…? And what if…? If…? What begins as an odd question for a couple in line at Ikea soon becomes much more as they grapple with existence itself as a moral question, in Duncan Macmillan’s timely and startlingly funny Lungs.
