A funny thing happened on the way to the pub… Bob Cunningham thought he saw a man ascend into the sky.
It’s two years after the referendum, and Bob Cunningham has stuff on his mind: whether or not to take early retirement; politics, of course, and what to do about the No vote, Brexit, Corbyn, the refugee crisis… that weird thing about rising into the heavens… and not forgetting the letter from Ethel, his ex-.
It puts him in storytelling mood – Bob’s one of life’s raconteurs – all the while trying to decide what to do about retirement and the onset of old age, and whether his life’s work is done. Is he finished? Can he come to terms with his, and his country’s, past, and future?
Follow-up to The Pitiless Storm, performed by David Hayman, written by Chris Dolan, directed by David Hayman Jr.
Only one performance so book your tickets early at the Barony Box Office or call 07541 346639.
We are delighted that house builder Persimmon Homes East Scotland’s community champions initiative have donated £945 towards The Barony Players theatre restoration project.
The Barony Theatre is a fantastic community venue which was last fully renovated in 1966, and despite the best efforts of our volunteers, the building is now in desperate need of repair.
We have a prioritised list of renovation and upgrades that are required and we are currently running a project to complete as many of these taks as possible. Persimmon’s kind donation will fund a new fire alarm system, which is very high on our list of priorities.
Jim Kirkpatrick, managing director for Persimmon Homes East Scotland, said: “We are delighted to support The Barony Players with a £945 donation, which we know will help contribute towards their wonderful community facility.”
Wendy Turner and Kathryn Markey, of Barony Players, receive a donation from Jeanette Muirhead and Stewart McIlwraith, of Persimmon Homes
