Capall Dorcha Presents: Building Bridges

Date of Event:    November 23, 2018

Capall Dorcha Presents: Building Bridges at The Harbour Arts Centre in Irvine on Friday 23rd November from 7:30pm until 9:00pm.

Join Capall Dorcha Theatre Company at the Harbour Arts Centre to enjoy new theatre writing. ‘Building Bridges’ written by Marie Dunlop is a Scottish drama dealing with marital separation, reconciliation and trust issues within a family. It also deals with loyalty, betrayal and the unfailing love of a mother and grandmother, set against the backdrop of demolition and renewal that was Anderson, Glasgow, in the mid-1960s. Whilst not a historical account of what happened to the Anderson community as a result of the Glasgow Corporation’s Comprehensive Redevelopment Plan as it prepared for the construction of the M8 and the Kingston bridge, Building Bridges does sign-post the changes to come. It also very much captures the flavour of a time where many of Anderson’s inhabitants saw the tenements they had always known, coming down around them.

Tickets cost £3.95 and can be booked here
