Cora Bissett’s What Girls Are Made Of is returning, going out on tour from 9th April and features BAA’s Simon Donaldson and Harry Ward.
It’s 1992. In a small town in Fife, a girl is busting out of her skin to get out into the world and see what’s on offer. And an ad in the local paper declares: Band Seeks Singer.
Grunge has just gone global, scruffy indie kids are inheriting the earth, and a schoolgirl from Glenrothes is catapulted to a rock star lifestyle as the singer in a hot new indie band. Touring with Radiohead, partying with Blur, she was living the dream. Until she wasn’t.
Based on her meticulously detailed, pull-no-punches teenage diaries, this is the true story of Cora Bissett’s rollercoaster journey from the girl she was to the woman she wanted to be.
The tour kicks off at Citizens Theatre @ Tramway – for tickets and more info, click hereAladdin – The Webster Memorial Theatre

Ballyturk – Tron Theatre
Directed by Andy Arnold, Enda Walsh’s Ballyturk opens at the Tron Theatre on 4th October, featuring Brennan Artists Wendy Seager, Simon Donaldson, Joyce Falconer and Crawford Logan.
Ballyturk is Enda Walsh’s moving meditation on the brevity of our existence – a mundane village with echoes of Dylan Thomas’s Llareggub in Under Milk Wood, viewed through a Truman Show style filter of confined artificiality.
Explosions both literal and imagined, music and exhilarating physical comedy punctuate beautifully poetic renderings of life in the type of small town we have all visited, and, more likely, lived in. The result is exuberant, surreal, funny and gut-wrenchingly sad.

Part live folk-gig, part folk tale, part barn-storming comedy – David Greig’s modern play will thrill and haunt in equal measure.Dusty Won’t Play – A Play, A Pie and A Pint
