I Can Go Anywhere comes to the Traverse Theatre this December and features Paul McCole as Stevie, a disillusioned academic who once wrote an unfashionable book on youth movements in Britain, now struggling to cope after a painful break-up.
His misery is interrupted by Jimmy who lands unexpectedly on his doorstep beaming with excitement. Jimmy is 100% Mod: oversized military parka, fitted Italian suit, dessy boots, pork pie hat. The full package.
Jimmy is seeking asylum in the UK. With just a few days before the substantive interview that’s going to decide his fate, the stakes are high. So he came up with a brilliant plan. A plan that’s going to work against all odds. It has to work. He can’t go back. And Stevie has an important part to play.
Written by Douglas Maxwell (Charlie Sonata, The Whip Hand), I Can Go Anywhere is a big-hearted call to arms; a Mod anthem to solidarity and acceptance in an increasingly hostile world. Directed by Scottish director and playwright Eve Nicol (The Drift).
Runs 7 – 21 December

From the comfort of armchairs in the studio, three amateur sleuths, they watch the drama play out as Mortcliff’s crack team of detectives make enquiries with the local residents. But in a show where everyone has a motive, it might prove harder to catch the culprit than you think. The Armchair Detectives are introduced to suspects, uncover vital clues and share their thoughts and theories as the story unfolds, before making their final accusation in a bid to win the golden magnifying glass trophy.
