Orphans – National Theatre of Scotland

BAA’s Paul McCole and Harry Ward feature in Orphans, NTS’s darkly comic musical about family, grief and forgiveness.

Glasgow, 1998, one hell of a storm is ripping through the city. The Flynn siblings just need to survive the night and make it to their mother’s funeral in the morning.

Thomas won’t leave the church. Michael is bleeding out and roaming the streets. John has a gun and a taste for revenge. And Sheila can’t wait to live life on her own terms. But things like this bring a family together, right?

An adaptation of the multi award-winning cult film by Peter Mullan, Orphans is directed by Cora Bissett and adapted by Douglas Maxwell, with music and lyrics by Scottish composing team Roddy Hart and Tommy Reilly.

Beacon Arts Centre – 1st-2nd April
