Scottish Tour Dates

David Hayman returns as everyman Bob Cunninghame.  The third in Chris Dolan’s trilogy, following The Pitiless Storm (2014) and Cause of Thunder (2017).

Bob’s in hospital. A long dark night of the soul, an understaffed ward, a top-floor single room. The Death Star.  He’s broken – like the world around him… And tomorrow morning?  A painful, risky procedure; Bob, convinced he won’t survive.

This doesn’t stop him from ranting about injustice and the state of the world… laughing at everything, including himself.  No way Bob’s going gently into that good night, he’ll burn and rave at close of day, raging against the dying of the light.

Premiering at Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2022, Time’s Plague embarks on an extensive Scottish tour throughout September and October with 37 dates in total.

Hayman explains: ‘It’s always a joy to be back on stage in Scotland and an even greater pleasure to be back playing Bob Cunninghame.  Chris Dolan is a fantastic writer and the depth that he gives to Bob’s character makes it a great vehicle for humour, anger, and just about every other human emotion!  We’re taking the tour all over Scotland – theatres, community halls, miners’ welfares, the islands, north, south, east, and west.  It’s what theatre should be about.’

Writer Chris Dolan adds: ‘‘It’s the culmination of a dramatic trilogy. Pitiless Storm, the political; Thunder, the personal. Plague, a matter of life and death…. Bob’s deepest, spiritual journey. Bob Cunninghame returns to tackle the West Highland Way, via Palestine and the operating table. If the scalpel doesn’t do for him, Ben Nevis might!

Has Bob – trade unionist, activist, Everyman – reached the end of the road? He calls on Elvis, the Alexander Brothers, and a host of remarkable bed-fellows to get him through his biggest challenge yet!’

Time’s Plague is seriously funny’, says producer Stephen Wright.  ‘It has been great to ‘get the band back together’ for one more outing for Bob    We are delighted to bring this production to The Fringe this year and to then embark on such an ambitious tour.’

The tour is sponsored by UNITE the Union.
