Drama Live - Programme

September 8, 2018

Join us tonight for the penultimate McLellan Arts Festival event - Drama Live - which is taking place at 8pm in Corrie Hall. 


Tonight is a unique opportunity to see new work from the second year BA Acting students of the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland. 


Each piece has been created by the students and was originally performed as part of the On the Verge Festival at the Citizens Theatre. 


Searching for a Sunny Day


They say identity is defined by our experiences. So who are you if you can't remember your past? To save her grandmother from losing herself, a little girl goes searching for her nana's missing memories.

Wilf and the Whale


Plastic waste is a problem. So much of a problem, in fact, that right in the middle of the Pacific a whole ecosystem has formed solely of trash. This is Wilf's Island. Kept company by only a few birds and his best friend, the Whale, Wilf lives a quiet life...this is until the humans get involved.

Struken Moon


Five suspects, five motives, one killer, one detective. One chance. Ten drinks, four drinkers. One doctor, no equipment. No chance. No escape. One exit. Twelve eyes, six mouths. Two monologues, nine scenes, three acts, two plots, one plots, no plot. Twenty-seven pages. Fourteen pages when it's printed on two sides. Two sides. Two worlds. Thirty minutes, half an hour, one-thousand eight-hundred seconds, one hell of a good time. Six haircuts. Twelve eyebrows. Some noses. One-hundred and ninety-two teeth. Chattering. Or not. One joke, zero punchline.
