The Yellow On The Broom – Dundee Rep

Brennan Artists Chiara Sparkes and Barry Hunter have just started their run in The Yellow on the Broom at Dundee Rep, which shows until 22nd September, then tours for one weekend at the MacRobert Arts Centre from Wednesday 26th September.

Adapted from Betsy Whyte’s beloved autobiography, The Yellow on the Broom is a heartfelt, funny, and rich account of human endeavour. Filled with music, song, and an array of vibrant characters, Bessie’s story both passionately tells of her life and vividly portrays the prejudice faced by Travellers.

Directed by Andrew Panton (Passing Places, August: Osage County, Love Song), The Yellow on the Broom kick-starts his second season as Dundee Rep’s Artistic Director.
