Number One Fan – A Play, A Pie and A Pint

See Joyce Falconer and David McGowan in Number One Fan at Oran Mor, written by Kim Millar and directed by April Chamberlain.

Jan McArthur is raging. Her husband just left her for a silicone-enhanced woman 20 years her junior. She’s lost her job.  Her cat just died. And to cap it all, the menopause is on the rampage, leaving her a hot flashing mess. When Jan reads Jack Bonham’s women hating column, he becomes the embodiment of everything that is wrong in her life. Jan sets out for revenge, and decides to kidnap Bonham until he writes a column in praise of the Older Woman… Before long it becomes clear that the strutting misogynist of his column is nothing more than a fiction… but now Jan’s got Glasgow’s top broadsheet columnist chained to her kitchen radiator… where does she go from here?

Cast: Joyce Falconer, Callum Cuthbertson and David McGowan

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.
