Blythe Duff stars as a Glasgow gangster’s daughter who must choose between family loyalty and forging her own path to success. The Fringe hit comes to Glasgow. Traverse Theatre and Datum Point Productions.
Mick was a generous man. A fair and respected man, defined by the landscape of Glasgow, that infamous No Mean City. The tales of what Mick had done have become the stuff of legend.He was the kind of gangster who was proud of where he came from, knew where his loyalties lay and looked after his own. But if you crossed him, well, that was a different story. But he was also a father. As she builds her own empire, can Ciara keep to the straight and narrow or will her father’s way of doing business prove too much to resist?
This hit show from the Edinburgh Festival Fringe is penned by one of Scotland’s most celebrated writers, David Harrower, whose other acclaimed work includes Good With People, Knives in Hens, Kill The Old, Torture Their Young and the Olivier Award-winning Blackbird.
A retired American steps off the plane at Prestwick, hoping to discover the land of his fathers. A beleaguered politician in Edinburgh dips her feet into a hot bath. An old drunk man in Peterhead has a mystical vision at the harbour. A supermarket checkout girl in Port Glasgow approaches work with a golf club…
Set specifically in the town of each performance and drawing on storytelling, live music and the Scottish folk tradition, Rantin’ attempts to stitch together visions of Scotland’s romantic past with its ever-changing present reality, revealing the patchwork identity of a nation.
Originally presented as part of the Auteurs project, a collaboration between National Theatre of Scotland and The Arches, and Behaviour 2013 with support from the Esmée Fairbairn Foundation, Rantin’ is part cosy living room gathering, part play, part gig session.
Devised and performed by Kieran Hurley, Gav Prentice, Julia Taudevin and Drew Wright.

Bloodwater Theatre Leave Your Shoes at the Door
Fri 31 January 2014
In October 2011 a group of international artists met for a week’s theatre residency in Glasgow to develop a performance: Pritam Kapoor originally from Singapore, now living in London; Lucy Fitzpatrick originally from Scotland, now living in Sydney; Monika Nawrat from Poland, currently lives in Scotland; Gordon O’Neill from Northern Ireland, currently lives in Scotland and Fatima Rateb, originally from Egypt but now living in London.
Two years later, they reunite in Glasgow to complete the work. They return for different reasons, aware of the challenges of working with the diverse artistic practices and varied temperaments of the artists within the group. They each have a story to tell and must decide whether to share this story. Leave Your Shoes at the Door raises questions about how theatre is made and whether the process of making can be synonymous to the product of theatre. Can artists who collaborate own what they collectively create?
Please note we will be filming this performance and you may be recognisable as a member of our audience. Please let one our ushers know if you would prefer not to be filmed.
BloodWater Theatre invite you to pay what you can for this performance with a range of ticket prices. The company is not funded and ticket revenue will go towards production costs.

2 Apr 2014 to 2 Apr 2014
Part of Glasgow International Comedy Festival
Miles Jupp – actor, writer and comedian – is making a return to stand-up and going on his first live UK tour since the hugely successful Fibber In The Heat with which toured the UK twice and performed in London’s West End in 2012.
He’s not been all that idle since – regularly appearing on Have I Got News For You, The News Quiz, Mock The Week as well as acting in Alan Bennett’s ‘People’ at the National Theatre for 8 months. In this show Miles will be discussing/ranting/describing: himself, you, domestic imprisonment, fatherhood, having to have opinions, hot drinks, the bloody government, bad balance, housing, ill health, the ageing process, navigation, other people’s pants and, inevitably, a number of other things.
Miles played Nigel in Rev., John Duggan in The Thick Of It and Owen in Spy as well as appearing in Michael Winterbottom’s The Look Of Love and George Clooney’s Monuments Men. A regular on Radio 4, he hosts the panel show It’s Not What You Know, and his sitcom In And Out Of The Kitchen was nominated for a Writers’ Guild Award.
This is a co-production with the Traverse Theatre in Edinburgh.
Featuring Scott Fletcher and Joanna Tope.
Annabelle strikes up an unlikely relationship with her dead husband's potty-mouthed employee, Jim. She begins to enter into Jim's un-finishing school, liberating her own voice through vulgarity, Annabelle gets herself heard.
By Alexander Trocchi
Adapted and directed by Alan McKendrick
Cast: Ross Mann, Lou Prendergast, Graham Valentine
Loose ends, things unrelated, shifts, nightmare journeys, cities arrived at and left, meetings, desertions, betrayals, all manner of unions, adulteries, triumphs, defeats these are the facts.
Acclaimed worldwide as a high watermark for Scottish literature and lauded by talents as various as William S. Burroughs, Patti Smith and Leonard Cohen, since its original 1960 publication Alexander Trocchis notorious Cains Book has earned itself a formidable reputation as the cult novel to end them all.
Cains Book depicts protagonist Joe Necchis experiences from a Glasgow childhood through to adult life in 1950s New York as a scow captain and unrepentant heroin addict. A tour-de-force of poetic writing simultaneously occupying the modes of drug literature confessional, bleak comedy and philosophical tract, the bold and still thoroughly contemporary Cain has lost none of its vivid force and power to astonish.
There will be a post show discussion following the performance on Wednesday 27th Feb.

Exquisite, super-smart solo show gloriously funny
From the hit motion pictures, television series, and international stage success, 'FAME' is nothing short of a global phenomenon. Set during the last years of New York City's celebrated High School for the Performing Arts on 46th Street (1980-1984), FAME - The Musical is the bittersweet but ultimately inspiring story of a diverse group of students as they commit to four years of gruelling artistic and academic work. With candour, humour and insight, the show explores the issues that confront many young people today and is both a high energy and entertaining show with a contemporary pop score, including the title hit song - 'Fame'!

Putting the audience centre stage, Untitled Projects bring their exquisitely constructed re-imagining of a 19th century salon to the Citizens Theatre. In doing so, the company creates a beautiful and thought provoking night of fashion and conversation.
Your evening begins with a transformation into full period costume by a coterie of dressers and make-up artists, before you emerge into a mirrored impression of a Parisian salon. As you mingle with guests, pioneers in their fields will provoke discussion, speaking on subjects at the vanguard of 21st-century thought on science, politics, technology and the arts.
The Salon Project recreates the exclusive meetings at the heart of what was salon societys golden age an era of change, excess and inquiry. Relive its splendour, contrast it with the present and imagine what the future will hold.
Written in 1939 by American playwright Joseph Kesselring, it has become best known through the film adaptation starring Cary Grant and directed by Frank Capra.
This is a farcical black comedy revolving around Mortimer Brewster, a drama critic who must deal with his crazy, homicidal family, which includes two spinster aunts who have taken to murdering lonely old men by poisoning them with a glass of home-made elderberry wine laced with arsenic, strychnine, and just a pinch of cyanide; a brother who believes he is Teddy Roosevelt and digs locks for the Panama Canal in the cellar of the Brewster home; and the re appearance of a long lost murderous brother who has received plastic surgery performed by an alcoholic accomplice, Dr. Einstein.
