Sunset by Martin Foreman

Sunset by Martin Foreman

At the end of the day, a grandmother looks back at her life from marriage to the present day. A virgin on her wedding night who becomes a reluctant mother with a philandering husband, a stay-at-home wife who in middle-age discovers business skills she never suspected, over decades this woman's emotions have been severely tested and sometimes rewarded. An intense, moving solo performance from Maggie Macleod.

Sunset premiered at the King's Head in London in 2013 as one of a trilogy of plays, Californian Lives, and featured Carolyn Lyster. Broadway World praised the "utterly convincing portraits of love" while Beige magazine called the evening "a masterclass in the art of the monologue." This version of Sunset is set in the UK.

Maggie Macleod has appeared on stage across Scotland, as well as in several BBC and ITV productions and the fourth series of Outlander. Performances
2, 3 and 5 - 10 August.

Bull by Mike Bartlett

Bull by Mike Bartlett

In the struggle for survival, no blow is too low.

One of three office workers is about to lose their job. As Tony, Isobel and Thomas wait for their boss to deliver the verdict, the three discuss each other's chances of survival. For alpha male Tony and calculating Isobel, it's clear that insecure Thomas should get the chop.

A razor-sharp play about the fine line between office politics and playground bullying which exposes the vicious side of human nature and the power of words. Director: Adam Tomkins; Tony: Jamie Stewart; Isobel: Nayia Anastasiadou; Carter: Alan Patterson; Thomas: to be confirmed.

Arbery Productions' Bull won three awards for production and stage design and was a finalist in the 2019 Scottish Community Drama Association One-Act Festival in Edinburgh and Kirkcaldy. Performances at the Edinburgh Fringe will be 12 - 17 and 19 - 24 August.
