Waiting: (A trilogy – My Perfect Place, The Big Squeeze, The End)
12 and 13 Sep 2014 – 7:30 pm – 10:00 pm
W A I T I N G …
A trilogy of intriguing & contrasting one act plays, interlinked by one character’s part in them all… and the fact that waiting can be a challenge.
My Perfect Place
Two strangers (Sarah and Joe) meet in the perfect place they each thought was only theirs.
This drama, with a twist, unfolds, revealing the building relationship and these complex people, through the high and low-type conversations which can go to make any of our lives.
The Big Squeeze
Jessie and Mary are long time friends. We find them in the waiting room of a mobile breast screening unit (plonked in the Asda car park).
Their hilarious conversation and side-splitting take on life, veils the subtle undertone of the tragic, ironic (always the back) story of Jessie.
Frankie, a nurse, has come home from a long working day to care for her elderly, infirm mother.
Our conclusions seem initially simple as we listen to her hilarious stories of her life. Contrasting, sinister actions and unfolding accusations, however, will have us changing our minds and battling with ourselves and fellow audience members all the way to the pub.
“Waiting” was written by Karen Herbison who penned the acclaimed dinner theatre piece “Say You Love Me” which is now the subject of Creative Writing workshops already delivered across Renfrewshire, Inverclyde and West Dunbartonshire Advanced Higher English pupils and received full house / standing ovation acclaim at the 2012 Fringe
Praise for the Fringe Punch Production of “Say You Love Me” …
“… Karen Herbison’s beautifully written script serves as a perfect platform for the three talented performers to showcase their talents. With high humour versus high drama, the cast really have their work cut out. Truth is they are well up to the task and deliver with aplomb.
With many laughs along the way, suitably interrupted with ‘lump in your throat’ moments, this is an afternoon well spent.
Ali McDougal, Edinburgh Evening News”
